10 Races in 10 Months to Raise 10K for Charity!
Nalia Malik ran 97 miles to build deep water wells in her late mother's memory
Here at Penny Appeal, we're extremely proud of all or our amazing fundraisers, but some people deserve a very special mention. Meet Naila Malik from Leicester, who took up running at the age of 50!
Naila ran five 10Ks and five half marathons this year, totalling an amazing 97 miles, in memory of her mother, and hopes to raise £10,000 for Thirst Relief. A huge congratulations is in order to the incredible Naila for completing her 10 race challenge!

In 2018 I turn the same age as my mother when she passed away. My family have always told me that I look and behave like her and sometimes I wonder if my life will be as short as hers, too. She was an amazing woman, and if I want to be anything like her then I’m going to make sure I don’t waste any time and go out there and make her proud.
in 2018 I am taking on my biggest challenge yet and running 10 races in 10 months (5 half marathons and 5 10ks)! Insha’Allah (God willing).
These deep water wells will give families reliable access to clean water which will allow them to drink, wash, grow crops and water their animals safely. Hopefully, I will reach my target and young girls in Gambia won’t have to spend hours fetching water each day - freeing up time to go to school and look after their families. I hope her well brings as much happiness to people in Gambia as my mum did to my life.
Please donate generously and let’s build this well together!
