Hola Mi Gente!!!
Thank you for visiting my page. I'm running Edinburgh's half marathon on the 28th of May. As it's my first time doing this, I have decided to run with a clear goal of helping people in need and what a better initiative than raising money to help Venezuelan children.
At the moment my country is going through very difficult times. The economic situation in Venezuela continues to go from bad to worse, and things are unlikely to get better. People can't afford basic goods, food, medicines and pretty much anything beyond that.
Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to CHAMOS Charity which is a non-profit organisation that provides local organisations with the resources to improve health care and education to children in the most deprived areas in Venezuela.
So, pull out that wallet and come on board with me in this beautiful cause to help children in my country achieve a better quality of life. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
Fundraising has now finished, but thanks for visiting this page.

Chamos - In Aid Of The Children Of Venezuela - The aim of CHAMOS is to improve the living standards of the most deprived children in Venezuela, whether living in urban or rural areas, or in indigenous communities. We do this by providing financial support for them to acquire medical, educational or other essential equipment through highly respected and reputable NGO's in Venezuela. CHAMOS has no political or religious affiliation, and all funds are raised through volunteer work.

2017 The Edinburgh Marathon
28 May 2017
The Edinburgh Marathon starts in London and Regent Road before passing by the historic Holyrood Palace, home to Scottish kings and queens. It then runs through Holyrood Park in the shadow of Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano. It races by Meadowbank Sports Stadium, scene of former Commonwealth Games glory for runners such as Liz McColgan. It then turns north, along Lochend Road and Leith Links before reaching Portobello Promenade for some bracing seaside air. The route then stretches along Musselburgh Road before reaching Musselburgh Racecourse then on to Prestonpans, passing Cockenzie and Port Seton. It then races on to picturesque East Lothian, along Scotland’s golf coast which boasts 22 courses including some of the world’s oldest and most admired like North Berwick, Gullane and Muirfield. The route reaches the village of Longniddry before reaching Gosford House, looping around and heading back past Musselburgh Links, the famous golf course officially recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest golf coure in the world. The marathon finishes in playing fields at Pinkie St Peter’s Primary School.
