You Heard it Here First

Personally (Ken here) I blame Niall Manogue.

Niall recently left Kiwoko to take up the post of Regional Mission Partner with CMS Ireland. While Niall was at Kiwoko we would run together to unwind from a day in the office. On one of these runs Niall challenged me to run the Belfast marathon – thinking that he was not serious I said I would if he would. That was me thinking of course that Niall would not be so – what’s the word – foolish.Anyway it seems that he is and so we have committed ourselves to running the Belfast marathon on May Day 2008 in Belfast.

We will be running to raise much needed funds for Kiwoko Hospital. Maybe I should put a bit more financial info here from time to time, but basically we need to raise the majority of our funds from voluntary donations. A big proportion of this comes from Friends of Kiwoko Hospital but running Kiwoko has constant financial demands and when the average person locally earns much less than $1 per day then you can see how we raise very little money locally. Anyway I will try and keep you posted on progress – this weekend is the Kiwoko Chase when I will run 16 km along with 49 others from Luwero to Kiwoko – some photos may follow!

Thanks to all of you who support Kiwoko…if you want to learn more get in touch…
