Will Morgan is raising money for Sheffield Palestine Cultural Exchange

My story

I am running the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday April the 7th. I am not a runner and never really have been but I wanted a target to work towards on a journey of taking better care of myself. I was going along well with my training and aiming to finish the course under two hours. However, I recently have picked up a bit of a injury and have been struggling more in the run in to the event. With a few weeks to go I will need to really push myself to get close to this target.

I am also a climate and social justice activist. On both of those fronts the single most devastating and pressing issue is the ongoing genocide being perpetrated in Palestine right now. The situation is so dire that it is extremely hard to get help to those that need it most. The Sheffield Palestine Cultural exchange have links into Gaza and are doing amazing work getting support in.

I hope that people are already giving what they can, but if me attempting to run round a fairly brutal half marathon course can encourage anyone to donate more to this desperately needed cause... well...  then please please do!

If you want to talk to anyone more about other ways you can support then get in touch.

Thank you so much for all your donations so far!

It has been just over a week since I ran the Sheffield Half Marathon... now I am ready to write about it!

Unfortunately, though the run started out ok the injury I had to my left knee flared up about a mile into the run leaving me with 12 miles or thereabouts to contemplate running on a very sore and not entirely functional left leg!

It was very much the thought of the situation in Gaza, the donations that people had made and the support around the course that kept me going. Though I did not quite manage to break the 2 hour target that I had set myself, I did cross the line in 2:05:41 and finished the whole race running.

I am proud of myself for managing it but no doubt will be going again at some point once my knee is recovered. Thank you again for all your support. Please share and continue talking and raising awareness around the ongoing atrocities happening to the civilian population in Gaza.

The day is fast approaching. Managed a good start to the week last week, running 18.5km in about 1 hour 45 minutes. Fingers crossed I can replicate this on the day. Will be doing a few shorter runs now until the big day.

The horror of genocide in Gaza continues. Thank you so much for the donations so far. I’m really hopeful that we can drum up a bit more support.

Keep spreading the word. 💚

Many many thanks for all the donations so far! I’ve been for two short runs today (one to work, and one back home!) After a bit of a stretch I’m still mobile so this is a good sign.

Please continue to share. Every donation heips a vital cause.
