danny porter is raising money for FRIENDS OF DOUBLE JOY

Danny's Manchester Marathon run for the charity Double Joy

Event date: 29th April 2012

My story

Hello, I am running the Manchester Marathon on 29th April for the charity Friends of Double Joy - a Kenyan charity for orphans of AIDS victims. Double Joy is a home and school for children orphaned by Aids in Kenya. Double Joy is in a rural area of South West Kenya.

There are a million orphans in Kenya and although the infection rate for HIV and Aids is now decreasing the rate of people dying is increasing. This means there are growing numbers of orphans living in child-headed families. Children are caring for dying parents and their younger siblings. As a consequence of this many are not able to attend school and are extremely vulnerable to abuse.

As well as sponsoring a worthwhile charity you get the opportunity to enter a competition to see who guesses nearest to my finishing time. The prize? A 3 course meal for 2 at Chorlton's famous Croma restaurant. So for every fiver, you get a guess. Previous form - 2004 4:26:39, 2006 4:17:07, 2011 4:36:30. Just email your name and a time at Thanks.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto FRIENDS OF DOUBLE JOY.
