Darren’s marathon run to help children in Nicaragua

Darren A running

Darren Allwright has a huge heart and he is trying to fit 400 million children who are living in poverty into it. He knows that he can’t help them all but he is helping children in Nicaragua, Central America. Darren and his wife Rachel sponsor two children there through the charity Compassion UK.

“Rachel and I sponsor Katherine and Andru who live in Managua, the capital of Nicaragua”, said Darren. “I have also ridden from Lands End to John O’Groats to build extra classrooms at this [Mangua] Compassion project.

“This June I’ll be running a marathon just outside the Masai Mara Nature Reserve in Kenya for Compassion UK.  Even though there’s great need in Kenya, I’m focusing my attention on Compassion’s work in Nicaragua, Central America where 12% of the population live on less than 66p a day.

“Ever since I visited Compassion’s work there in 2012, I have fallen in love with Nicaragua!”

This is why we would love for you to join us in transforming this specific community through sponsoring a child or donating to this specific Compassion project in Managua, Nicaragua.

Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry who work with local churches. They are committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, including Nicaragua.
