We are running to raise money for a program which helps disadvantaged children in the favelas of Sao Paulo, Brazil. These children are often at risk of leading a life on the streets where they are vulnerable to drugs and violence. Our chosen project has been running for a few years already and has proven to be a success. The program is run by local teenagers so it delivers both a valuable service to the community and provides work experience and useful skills for them. Every single £ helps!
