This year I am running the ”Dam tot Damloop”, or as it is known in English, the Dam to Dam run taking place in Amsterdam on the weekend of the 21st-22nd of September. The race is 10 miles (or 16.1 km) long. As many of you all know ( or if you’re new here) I have been a volunteer for Niños de Guatemala since 2016. I recently visited the school this summer and had the opportunity to volunteer with the 5-6 year old kids who were learning English. Watching the kids really attempt to learn and use a foreign language inspired me to attempt this long run so I can help to further progress their education. I really feel as though the schools have not only improved the English level of the kids but have also provided the children with a positive environment. I always love going back to Guatemala and am continuing to find ways to help the kids when I’m not there. Completing this race will be a challenge but I’m super excited to try and reach this goal with your help! Below I have attached links to both the Niños de Guatemala website and the Dam to Dam race. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated, I am still overwhelmed by how much has already been achieved through my previous campaigns, I hope we can go even further!!
