Link's Global News
This week (Friday 25 October to Monday 3 November) eight adventurous Link supporters are taking part in one of our most unique and challenging fundraising events - the Uganda Bike Ride 2013.
During September this year, four brave Link supporters set out on an epic challenge to complete the Thames Path Challenge. The challenge was to walk a staggering 100km or a shorter (but just as tasking!) 50km alongside the Thames River as it meanders all the way from Putney to Henley-on-Thames. Not only was there a vast distance to cover, but it was to be completed within a 24 hour time frame - so walking all through the night was a necessity!
Almost 150 people took part in Link's first running of Sumo Run, a 5km fun run through Battersea Park, London, on Sunday 28 July 2013.
“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again” - Nelson Mandela.
Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela! The anti-apartheid hero turns 95 today as he remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital.
South Africans are being urged to mark their first black president’s 67 years of public service with 67 minutes of charitable acts. Our intern Nick at Link has drawn a picture of Mandela in spirit of this celebration.
