Congratulations to Sam O’Kane and his father Pat who completed the Hasewater half marathon last Sunday, raising over £1,000 for Quest4Change. 100% of the money they raised will support projects which improve the lives of children and poor families living in the shanty town of Villa Maria, Peru.

“It was a great run, the weather could not have been better and the scenery was beautiful!! Myself and my dad completed the course together managing to get a time of 1 hour 49 minutes and 33 seconds, which we were both happy with considering it was quite a hilly route!” Sam O’Kane
Well done and a huge thank you to Sam and Pat and everyone who has supported them for such a fantastic effort. The money they have raised will go towards the construction of new houses for the poorest families living in Villa Maria, giving them solid, warm, secure new homes. Donations will also be contributing to a summer recreation programme for the children of Villa Maria, providing workshops in sport, art, dance and music, which helps keep them off the streets and out of trouble.
