Gavin Bergin is raising money for In Ministry to Children

In Ministry to Children Marathon

Event date: 10th September 2017

My story

Im running the New Forest marathon on 10 September 2017 to raise money for In Ministry to Children (MC). IMC are a local charitable foundation set up by family friends based in Petersfield, who support children in terrible circumstances in Columbia. They do terrific work, improving the lives of some of those in real poverty and terrible danger in a part of the world that is often overlooked. They do so on a shoe string budget and rely heavily on the generosity and kindness of others to operate.

IMC provide relief and support for children in Colombia who are at risk through poverty, neglect, abuse or violence. They provide essentials for children in Columbia. Things like assistance with access to education, psycho-social support, medical and health checks and healthy meals everyday.

They work with communities in marginal locations to identify families most at risk, due to poverty and violence and offer support for parents. They work with a partner foundation to help those most in need and offer crisis care placements for children in immediate danger a well as community based programmes with volunteers, local churches, businesses and municipalities.

Any donations are gratefully received and if anyone who would like to support me as I cross the finish line, please get in touch.

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 In Ministry to Children.
