HDSgreentech are supporting ‘Health Poverty Action’ by running the 2015 London Marathon
October 2014: Damian only started running in April 2014, and has challenged himself to complete the 2015 London Marathon, effectively only 1 year since he started running. He recently completed his first half marathon, so he’s not completely mad, but just has to do it twice over on the one day.
Damian is running in aid of the charity ‘Health Poverty Action’. This charity works to improve the health of poor and marginalised communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America. They tackle the root causes of poverty and ill health, working in partnership with the world’s poorest people to grow local expertise in health services and disease prevention so that communities can survive and thrive. They also campaign to change the policies and practices that create and sustain poverty and poor health.
If you are able to support Damian and this worthwhile charity please visit www.virginmoneygiving.com, it would be much appreciated.
