Amrisha Prashar is delighted to announce her forthcoming event, Hackney Half Marathon:

Event Details


Amrisha has decided to take on the Hackney Half Marathon in May - 21km across East London.

Training will involve three months of regular long runs (come rain or shine), cross-training, yoga and a diet with minimal alcohol and sweets! She is excited by the challenge and in doing so will raise funds for those less fortunate.

Funds will be donated to the charity Whisper, who is a children's hospital based in Jinja, Uganda, that provides essential medical and treats up to 40 children daily suffering from serious conditions that include TB, HIV, Malaria and Malnutrition. Amrisha visited Whisper on a trip to Uganda recently and was amazed by the dedication, positivity and expertise from the hospital staff doing all they can to help the children. 

Uganda has good (if scarce) medical staff but is routinely let down by poor support services and standards of care. For example, power cuts are common and in government hospitals, small children on oxygen routinely die when the power fails.  Whisper’s inpatient mortality rate has been very low by local standards, with just 5 unavoidable deaths since the hospital opened. 

Amrisha would love your support in helping donate any way you can for Whisper as she takes on the race!
