On behalf of everyone at Bread & Life International (BLi), we would like to thank Astute for your kind and generous donation of £340. The money raised will go directly into projects in the Philippines (May 2017) that include supporting an orphanage in Delores, Eastern Samar and a vegetation project, as well as provide medical and dental clinics as we visit the village within this rural community.
Wow - simply wow. These past 6months have been simply incredible!
With the dust starting to settle and blood circulation beginning to return to Hui King's tired and sore legs...from HK and everyone at Bread & Life International, we wanted to say an immense T-H-A-N-K--Y-O-U for everyone's wonderful support, generous donations and kind words of encouragement throughout all of this.
The calm before the storm. It's about 16 hours before the run (at time of writing!).
I went to the Excel London center this morning to collect my kit, the bib and the tag, that was packed with tomorrow's runners, a foretaste on how busy it will get come race day! Then went to meet my travelling supporters at Victoria station, all 2 of them (thanks Steph and Benson and Yin tomorrow!).
I'm feeling strangely calm now and just relaxing this evening with Jay & Alice & family - it makes me really appreciate the support I have been receiving today, this week, these last few months.
Thank you all again who have been with me on this journey even if it was a short word of encouragement or even a "like" on Facebook!
Tomorrow I'll be running the longest distance I have ever done in my 47 years to date, I am as best prepared as I can be and couldn't have done this without your immense support.
So until tomorrow, God bless.
Ps. BTW - If you like, you can track my progress as I run via the Virgin Money London Marathon 2017 mobile app here.
Whether Hui King likes it or not...here it comes!! Months of training, cramp and long nights thumping the tarmac have led upto standing on the London Marathon 2017 start line this upcoming Sunday morning. And...why and what for?
On the 29th April 2017, BLi missions to the Philippines will begin - where a team of various professions (inc. HuiKing) and areas of awesomeness will be heading to San Isidro, Philippines to serve & love the local community in areas such as medical, dental, children and youth work, prison ministry, community farming projects etc.
We at Bread & Life International, believe that this is worth it and so much more. Whether it's a big or small community or personal interaction, loving people for who they are is what we are passionate about!
