Case Study: Team Amref 2016
In the past, Amref have had some star runners who have smashed their fundraising targets - and you can, too! One such runner is Kamal Dalal, who ran the London Marathon in 2016.
"I was so proud to fly the Amref flag by taking part in the London Marathon," he said. "It was my very first marathon so I was pretty nervous taking on the challenge. But raising money for a cause that is so important to me spurred me on and, come race day, it was worth every hour of training and discipline! The team at Amref was incredibly supportive and I was thrilled to have raised nearly £10,000. If you’re thinking about signing up, my advice would be: just do it!"
London Landmarks Half Marathon 2019
