Sydney runs to raise money for DEC Cyclone Idai Appeal

We heard some inspiring stories from runners at todays East Grinstead 10 Mile Event. We’ll be bringing you their stories over the next few days.

Like Sydney Mlambo, who ran the East Grinstead 10 Mile Race today to raise money for DEC Cyclone Idai Appeal. Cyclone Idai swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe just over 2 weeks ago, leaving a trail of destruction, killing 750 people and leaving 2.5 million people in need of help.

Sydney ran today in remembrance of those who died and to help those who have been left orphaned and homeless. If you want to donate visit just giving. We salute you Sydney.
