My dad (Bhuwani Pandhak) will be running the London Marathon on 17th April 2011. The marathon is one of the most popular in the world and has a distance of 42 kilometres. He has always been sporty and keeping his fitness is a must. He also participated in the Trailwalker earlier this year where he along with his friends walked the distance of 100 KM, they completed the course in just under 24 hours. Continous walking… Crazy shit. They raised just over £5000 during the Trailwalker which supports the British Gurkha Welfare Trust and Oxfam.
This time around his target is to raise £1700 of which £700 has already been raised. The money will go towards The Esther Benjamins Trust which is a UK registered charity that helps improve the lives of Nepal’s most vulnerable children.
