The toughest race on earth for Hope for ChildrenJelf’s Branch Director for Cardiff and Swansea, Dale Williams, is undertaking the Marathon des Sables in 2019; a 156-mile Ultra Marathon across the Sahara Desert.
Dale said: “I’ve been looking for a charity to support for a good while and a challenge that would support my physical goals”.
He is inspired by the work of Hope For Children and wants to support them by raising money as part of his participation in Marathon des Sables.
Hope for Children enables vulnerable children to experience a happy childhood by improving their access to education and healthcare, and empowering families to support themselves.
Aside from the marathon Dale is taking part in several other endurance events to prepare himself for the desert. He will be doing two Ironman events in June and September, and cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats; the furthest possible distance in the British Isles!
Dale is passionate about actively giving back to our local communities and encouraging others to give to fantastic causes like this and perhaps take on a challenge themselves!
