7th June 2016
From 1-5 June 2016, one of the directors of Serekinti, Daniel Schraibman, ran and walked most of the Offa’s Dyke Trail in aid of the British Red Cross. He started in Chepstow on the Bristol Channel and finished on Moel Famau, the highest mountain in the Clwydian Range. This involved running and walking around 35 miles per day for the first four days in blisteringly hot conditions with around 26,000 feet of ascent. Unfortunately, a repeated ankle sprain meant that he only managed to do 20 miles on the final day before having to retire.
However, he still completed 160 miles and, together with the other members of his running club, succeeded in raising around £6,000. This money will buy new defibrillators for the British Red Cross so that they can continue to provide emergency assistance to people as soon as a problem occurs.
Daniel said: “I really appreciated the logistical and moral support from family and friends along the route and a big thank you to everyone that helped me to raise funds for the British Red Cross.” If you would like to support Daniel’s fundraising efforts, you can still donate online at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/danbughharriersoffasdyke.
