Former soldier Marcus Kilpatrick has run over 100 kilometres in the last year to raise funds to help Norwich-based charity Care for Children place orphaned and abandoned children into local, loving families across Asia and China.

Marcus ran his final 10k in support of Care for Children’s work, along with charity colleagues in Norwich city centre on November 21, finishing outside the charity’s office in The Close near Norwich’s Anglican Cathedral.
 
During 2018 Marcus has run ten 10k races across Norfolk. Staff joined the final run to encourage Marcus and to show how grateful they were for his amazing commitment.
 
Phill Gray, Care for Children’s Group Operations Manager, praised Marcus’ efforts. He said: “We really appreciate Marcus’ amazing efforts in raising money to help orphaned children across Asia find loving families. He even managed to get our staff out running alongside him!”
 
So far, Marcus has raised over £1,100 but there’s still time to support his fundraising efforts. Visit www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/marcuskilpatrick to support Marcus and donate to Care for Children’s work.

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.
