Bali Marathon

Event date: 16th June 2013


My story

During my last year of living in Indonesia, I made a very good friend. He made the equivalent of $3 a day as an ojek driver (basically a taxi driver but with a bike.) He lived off 2 packs of noodles a day and slept under a tree on the side of the road. I began to notice white patches growing on his eyes and noticed he was struggling to see the roads while driving. I found out it was cataracts and in fact within a year or two he could be fully blind left with no sight and no way of earning money. The saddest thing about it is that when I looked into it this is a problem faced by hundreds of thousands of Indonesians. I visited an orphanage where some children were completely blind and some were in the beginning stages of blindness. Unlike the UK, Indonesia ha no health care system and these people have no choice other than to accept the fact that they will not be able to see. It has become a second home to me after living there for almost three years and I always wanted to give something back and help the amazing people I've met. On June 16th I will run the Bali Marathon and would appreciate any donations you could give to the charity I have chosen 'The John Fawcett Foundation.' ( They are an award winning charity who help give eye operations to the thousands of poor Indonesians faced with this problem. Thank you very much for anything you can give and if you have no money, no problem just take a second to remember the NHS is not so bad after all.

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 THE JOHN FAWCETT FOUNDATION (UK).
