Runner's World (UK) - - HUMAN RACE -

Dis­mayed by my over­flow­ing drawer of un­worn race T-shirts, I shared my con­cern with fel­low mem­bers of my run­ning club, Har­ro­gate Har­ri­ers, and sug­gested an idea. With many as­pir­ing ath­letes in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries not hav­ing ac­cess to tech­ni­cal train­ing cloth­ing, why not send them where they are needed? We got to­gether and funded the trans­porta­tion of 220 un­wanted run­ning T-shirts to young run­ners in Nige­ria. It would be good to see such a scheme given more wide­spread sup­port.

Young Nige­rian run­ners get the kit they de­serve.
