I'm raising money for Stone of Hope Children Foundation. Donations will go towards the upkeep of the children under the foundation, to cater for their feeding, education, shelter and completion of key SHCF projects.
My name is Favour and my sister's name is Joy. We are orphan's. My parents died when I was 7 and Joy never really knew any of them.
We were being cared for by our grand parents in the village but it was difficult for them and for us as they could barely take care of their children and themselves.
The founder of Stone of Hope Children Foundation got to know about us then she took us in. Since then we have been under the care of the Foundation. It is a charity registered in England and Nigeria. They provide everything we need from shelter to clothes, food, and education. But the Covid-19 has done damage to everything including being able to sustain the Non Governmental Organization.
I have decided to raise money to help with our feeding, general welfare and education. Also for the maintenance of the Stone of Hope Academy building which is falling apart. There are several children like me who depend solely on Stone of Hope for their up keep and it is becoming too difficult to maintain this and the facilities as the Foundation is run financially solely by the founder who has been very generous towards us and have been handling all our needs by herself with very little help from donors, but at the moment is recovering from long term ill health.
I have always loved running and I have participated in few races and won medals from some of them. In the future I will like to represent Nigeria in athletics.
So if you ask me Why I Run, this time it's not to get a medal, it's to reignite hope and help my sister and friends the best way I can. I run to make sure that despite the disadvantages of this Covid-19 period and the ill health of our founder and caretaker, my friends get to have an advantage, an advantage that would help us all bloom where we are planted. This is WHY I RUN!
Please join me achieve my campaign target, I will run everyday until i am able to raise it.
Thank you very much, I love you!!
