One of our determined young people, Kirsty Tahta-Wraith, is taking on a personal challenge in March and asks for sponsorship to raise funds for Our Time. Kirsty will be doing the Salomon Citytrail™ Richmond 10K run in March.
“Growing up as a young carer for my father with bi-polar disorder had its fair share of difficulties. Nearing the end of the journey of childhood, I am so aware of the necessary help KidsTime Workshops gave me and my family, and thus where we would have been without it. There are so many other children like me, but drastically less people who are aware of their roles and willing to help them. The money I raise for Our Time WILL change this! Though I’m not strictly a kid anymore, the support I received and continue to receive from Our Time has stayed with me. It remains credited for many of my past, present and future achievements. Please donate, and enable other children to flourish too. I will be running a 10 kilometre race on the 22nd of March 2015. All of your donations will go towards Our Time. This is my effort to support those who supported me. Please show your support and donate what you can!”
