In August 2012 a group of volunteers will leave Ebbw Vale in south Wales with medical supplies, food, clothes and other aid, aiming to drive 1478 miles in around three days to get to Varfurile, Romania.

To raise money for the trip, three of the charity’s volunteers, Nathan Jones, Luke Remsbery and Jon Hyde are ‘running to Romania’, aiming to run a total of 1478 miles over the next year. That’s 492.67 miles each, or that’s… 492.67 divided by 52… that’s… um… that’s nearly ten miles each every week. Click here to find out a bit more about each of our runners.
