So far, Keith has run three of his five 10k runs, and has raised about £5,500 from them for the work of APT.

Keith before London raceHaving just turned 50, and never having run a 10k before, Keith has found the training and the runs themselves a challenge. He says:

"The training is killing me - I hate it! But the races themselves, even if hard, are a buzz, with so many people running for good causes, and with the crowds cheering us on. And of course, the knowledge that we are raising money to help the school, and the other work to bring God's blessing to Burkina, is the real goal that keeps me going."

Keith ran the first 10k in 58 mins, the second in 55, and he finished this one in London 54 mins and 30 secs. His goal (keeping the theme of "Fifty") is to get his time down to 50 mins by the last race.

Half of all money raised will go towards the Gorom-Gorom school, and the rest will go towards APT's other work of church planting, poverty relief, and community development in Burkina Faso.
