I will be competing in the Clare Valley Half-Marathon for Friends of Mithra on Sunday, 2 April 2017. MITHRA is a school which provides a home, an education, care and a life for the some of the most disadvantaged children in Chennai, India. In 2010, I travelled to Chennai to visit MITHRA, and it has left a lasting impact on me. In 2015, floods destroyed many of MITHRA's buildings, jeopardising the future of the children of MITHRA. Friends of Mithra seeks to re-build and construct MITHRA to continue to allow these differently abled children a chance in life.
If you were moved by the film Lion, please support MITHRA, as it is one of the few places in India providing hope for the young children of India.
