You might be wondering why we posted a photo of someone who does not reside in shuktara. We feel that this is important enough to post because shuktara has a runner in the London Marathon 2016 - Emma D'Arcey!
Running the London Marathon has been a dream of Emma's for 12 years. She feels the Marathon is a race that really shows London at it’s best. This is her first marathon (at the age of 40!) and she's been tirelessly training to prepare for her run for shuktara.
"It has always been important to me to choose a charity I have a personal connection with. shuktara perfectly fits the bill.
The money I raise will go towards the day to day running costs of shuktara – such as buying food and clothing for the children and young people."
"An enormous thank you for all the donations. I am very moved by the number from people who don’t know me. A clear indicator about how special shuktara is. Thank you!"
We are really excited about Emma's run and wanted to share this amazing news. To read more about Emma please click here to visit her fundraising page.
