Ambassador Words:

On Sunday 17 April I ran the 10.5 km race as part of this year’s Chisinau marathon. My target was to complete the course in less than one hour. It was closer than I expected – 59 mins and 59 seconds! It’s a good job I sprinted at the end!

Running for the Phoenix Centre, Riscani
MAD-Aid is a charity based in the Isle of Wight which helps children with disabilities in the Republic of Moldova to gain mobility and access to education.

Last year,  MAD-Aid transformed part of a disused activity centre in the northern town of Riscani into a modern daycare centre for children with disabilities. Your sponsorship of me in last year’s Chisinau marathon, contributed to that amazing achievement and the centre opened last September in the presence of the Moldova Prime Minister and over 30 volunteers from the UK.

MAD-Aid is now raising funds for the children’s playground with rubber floor and artificial grass. I would like to contribute by raising money for a special wheelchair swing so that for the first time these amazing children can experience that simple thrill that most of us take for granted and first experienced as young children.

You can find more about the Phoenix Centre in this short video:

MAD-Aid is it very great full for HM Ambassador of Great Britain to Moldova, Phil Batson for raising money towards Phoenix Centre.
He managed with some of your help to raise 75% of his target, we still can help him reached 100%!
