In October, Manuel participated for the 2nd time in the famous RPHM – Royal Parks Half Marathon – to support ALG. And he loved it!
“ALG does a great job at the Royal Parks Half Marathon every year, bringing first time and expert runners together to form a nice group. It starts with a warm welcome as you arrive at their well organised base, continues with their encouraging screams of support as you run around, and ends with their attentive care as you return to base (including a great relieving recovery massage). And whilst we are all having fun, pushing ourselves to the limit to beat our personal best times, it feels good to know that in the meantime we are sponsoring a worthy cause supporting underprivileged children in Mozambique; managed by a super dedicated ALG team of nice people; that ensure a super-efficient system where 95p for every £1 donated goes to the children”.
Manuel’s enthusiasm for our work was such that he is currently one of our first ALG Ambassadors! With the 2014 RPHM, we raised £15’550, which will be invested in our School meals Programme, at the Santa Luísa de Marillac Preschool, and in the HIV Day Care Centre. Congratulations 2014 RPHM team!
ALG has been offering this festive calendar to all ALG Friends since 2011. This year, you can also print a high definition version for only 1£!
