I will be taking part in my first full marathon at the annual Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on 21st Jan 2018.
Most importantly I would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness and donations for the heartfelt cause of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) aka Doctors Without Borders.
A short video of what MSF is about can be found here -
A longer video of the fantastic work of MSF can be found here -
The focus and determination of running is most important to succeed than simply the physical demand. This is the same ethos of MSF field workers who work in nearly 70 countries to provide emergency medical assistance to people whose survival is threatened by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care or natural disasters.
Although those who know me can relate that I don't seem (or look) like a typical runner, I hope my focus, determination and your support will drag me to the finish line =D
