3 Years running

Motivated by successful completion of last year race and inspired by generous support received, we are returning this year with a completely new challenge. Over the coming weeks we will be battling an IronMan Triathlon (IM) distance to raise funds for the Residential School “Hariharananda Balashram” in India.

This year’s challenge will be divided into 3 parts, in which we will indepedently take on running 42.195 km, swimming 3.86 km and cycling 180.25 km to jointly complete IM race. The challange will commence on 24th of April, with Wojtek sprinting through wide and green roads of London as part of London Marathon. Shortly after, Krzysztof will be testing the quality of Polish roads (as well as his bike), by cycling from Warsaw to southern part of Poland. And last but not least, Joanna will be checking the transparency of Polish open waters in an attempt to complete the swim.

The donation will be collected on behalf of the international non profit organisation (NPO) Hand in Hand that aims to offer education in areas lacking the necessary infrastructures and therefore co-funded building the Residential School "Hariharananda Balashram” in the little village Arua, in the Indian State of Odisha.

The charitable and state recognised residential school was opened in 2004 and since then helps poor children including orphans and half orphans to not only get comprehensive education, but also, most importantly, provide home and safe place to live. Currently there are around 450 children aged 3-15 staying in the school, but the school needs to grow to make the difference in life of many more children.

This Charity has always been close to our harts and today we feel very proud and passionate about helping to make their ambition a reality. We hope that the collected funds will make the difference and help more unprivileged children to have the childhood they deserve.

Thank you for your kind support and generous donations.

Best Regards,

Joanna, Krzysztof & Wojtek
