Go smash it Konna!!!
Hi there! My name is Konna, and since I found out about the existence of human trafficking when I was 11, it broke my heart. When having conversations about the issue throughout my life, people have often been surprised by the sheer scale of the issue, and how hidden it is - which has motivated me to continue talking about this. For a while I have wanted to take on a big challenge to raise both awareness, and funds for a charity whom I care about, which works towards ending slavery. Now I feel both mentally and physically ready, I have decided to run 100km, which will be the longest I will have ever run, on the day. This will be the Salomon Serpent Trail 100km Ultramarathon, in the beautiful South Downs National Park. The furthest official race I have run to date is half a marathon, so this race will also be my first ‘official’ marathon too! The challenge in this race is that it must be completed within 18 hours, and I must reach 3 checkpoints within a time limit in order to not be kicked out! So I am training hard so that this is definitely achievable! I have learnt that unfortunately, slavery exists everywhere, and it has actually increased throughout the course of history. So, if you would consider donating you are helping to save and rehabilitate the lives of men, women and children who have been held captive - both physically & psychologically. If you would like training updates and more info about this cause via WhatsApp, please email firstname.lastname@example.org !

- £15 could pay for a simple hygiene pack for someone who has just been rescued from slavery in the UK
- £50 could help provide access to therapeutic services, helping a survivor come to terms with their experience
- £100 can help provide essential training to the police officers, prosecutors and the judiciary to help ensure those responsible for trafficking are brought to justice
