Open Arms Malawi Fitness Fundraiser


On 23 July, 360 Athletic (located near Victoria Station) will be hosting SUUNTO and myself for an evening of heart-beating movement.  This charity event is raising money for Open Arms Malawi (OAM), which provides food to malnourished and orphaned children in Malawi.  I am visiting OAM in October and aiming to raise £500 as part of the Orbis Challenge I am completing whilst there (three 20KM+ trail runs with Dame Kelly Holmes).

Did you know it costs OAM £28 to feed 550 children for a day? That is about the same as a cup of coffee a day or a round at the pub.  £500 will have a large impact on the lives of many children and we would love for you to show your support.

Facebook event page is here but you need to purchase a ticket below.

Location: 360 Athletic, 170 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1DX
