Great North Run in a Pair of 'Crocs'
John is taking part in the Great North Run in Newcastle on the 8th September 2019.
John will run the half marathon in a pair of 'crocs'.
John hopes to raise £500 in support of children living in kinship care.
Why they need our service
John Porter took on the full time care of his nephew when his sister died.
John wanted to keep his nephew within his own extended family network and ensure his nephew had every opportunity imaginable to realise and achieve is potential.
3 years on and John's nephew is thriving and John is raising awareness of money in support of children in kinship care.
Plan and expected results
Money raised by John will go towards Christmas activities for 364 children who are being cared for by members of their extended family. Notably, money will be used towards the cost of activities in the run up to Christmas so children and young people who have experienced the loss of their mum and dad enjoy the festive period.
Your support would be very greatly appreciated.
