Bupa London 10K run – Niro the Foodrunner

Action Against Hunger

Action Against Hunger

A bit about me

  • A few weeks ago, the furthest I could run was to my local McDonalds.
  • I have a bit of a sweet tooth and sit right next to the Haribo drawer at work.
  • I eat what I want when I want and as much as I want.
  • I walk in to the fried chicken shop and I get handed chicken without even having to ask for it, they know me well.
  • My five a day consists of a bar of Fruit and Nut Cadburys bar, Cherry coke, Strawberry Ice-cream, Blueberry muffin, and Jammy Dodgers

Why do I want to put myself mentally and physically through this torturous run?

  • Millions of people all over the world struggle to even have a single meal a day.
  • Raise awareness about the plight of malnourished children to whom each new day is a battle to stay alive.
  • Give you a chance to donate to a very worthy cause by just sitting at your computer desks.
  • I have never raised money for charity and this will be my very first time
  • Not feel guilty when I next dig into that delicious chocolate cake
