FAB Initiative: Race for Change for Path to Possibilities

In our bid to support worthy causes in our communities, FAB Magazine is pleased to announce a new partnership with Path to Possibilities (P2P), the UK based charity passionately committed to transforming the lives of young children in Nigeria, in the run up to their annual race event “Race for Change” on Saturday June 30th at Trent Park in North London.

The charity is injecting a fashionable twist on the race track by encouraging its participants to do something exciting and different!

“We are so excited about our upcoming race and we want to make it as much fun as possible,” says Lola Bello, charity founder. “We are encouraging all our runners to come dressed in their Ankara pieces or whatever fun costumes they have.”

 

The charity is aiming to attract 100 runners on the day for the 5K and 10K race with an outlook to fundraise £10,000 or above to be able to educate 4 children at secondary school this year.

“They say we cannot achieve this but we know we can and we are going to do all we can to not let these kids down,” Lola added.

“We would like to urge you all to sign up for this race and do something amazing. Tell your friends; post it in on your Facebook wall, Tweet about it nonstop. We need all your support to achieve our goal,” Lola highlighted.

To sign up for the race visit the website www.pathtopossibilities.co.uk or email info@pathtopossibilities.co.uk and say “I want to educate a child” and the registration will be done on your behalf.

The race has already attracted support from comedian Eddie Kadi, the popular SKY series Meet the Adebanjos and its producer who will be running on the day; Debra Odutuyo.

    How come a continent with so much resources, the citizens are always begging and hoping?

    • Tamu says:

      Where does one begin, lets start with Exploitation colonialism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exploitation_colonialism which was followed by trade restrictions so that Africa continually struggles to compete in a global market.

      Most African’s don’t want charity they just want the opportunity to compete on a level playing field and to be able to provide goods, products, services etc for a fair price so they can stand on their own two feet.

    In response to Michelle, with due respect your question is rather odd, anyone who is a tad bit educated knows what Africa’s problems are, but in response to your question perhaps you don’t know but there are over 250,000 registered charities in the UK, that’s over two hundred and fifty thousand charities; this is a clear recognition that advancement even in developed countries requires citizens doing their bit or as you so put it ‘begging and hoping’ on behalf of those who need it.

    I find this interesting, however Anike, besides the compromised and self-serving African leaders what is Africas problem?

    • Shade says:

      Africa has many problems. Nigeria in particular has a population of over 140,000,000. There is nothing new in groups coming together to support Education be they from rich or poor countries. Take for example in the United Kingdom we have Shelter and other homeless charities. We could easily say that this is a welfare state so it’s the Government’s responsibility. I myself have been a supporter of Shelter for years. It is rather too simplistic to suggest that everything should be left to the Government we can all lend a helping hand.
