Story

We are the Dwelling Places Half Marathon TEAM: Debs Craig, Jordan Ahmed, Paul Bonnar, Anna Whall, Aileen Roche, Lorna Blacklam, Mark Berry, Cameron Berry Ruth Lloyd, Linda Bain & Leeanne Leyden. Please support us generously - for most of us this is our FIRST half marathon, and we are training hard for it!

We are running the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon on the 29th September 2019 for street children in Uganda so they don't have to.

Children are often forced to run to the streets of Kampala due to extreme poverty and hopelessness. Support Dwelling Places as we seek to rescue, rehabilitate, reconcile and resettle children into safe loving homes where they can go to school and have a regular healthy diet.

Donating with give.net is really easy and completely secure. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. Thanks for visiting!
