LAURA AND SOPHIE RUNNING FOR DOCTORS FOR NEPAL
Laura and Sophie are running in two very different but equally challenging events at the end of May, and are raising funds for Doctors for Nepal.
LAURA is running in the Cape Wrath Expedition Ultra Marathon Stage Race (400k over 8 days!) between 22 – 28 May.
Laura says “I’m running/walking/ crawling through bog, moor and forest for 400km over 8 days this May to raise money to fund scholarships for Nepali students from poor rural backgrounds to study medicine and work in their home area as doctors.
This is the first time I have done an event for charity. You all know how difficult life has been in the last year for Nepal since the massive earthquake a year ago. Even without this most rural Nepalese have no access to a doctor, in part because rural people cant afford to train as doctors.
Thanks for helping out!”

SOPHIE will be taking part in the Edinburgh Marathon on 28-29 May.
Sophie says “I am running the Edinburgh Marathon at the end of May for Doctors for Nepal – a fantastic charity that works to improve health care in rural Nepal. This is my first marathon (and probably my last!) so many thanks for sponsoring me.”
