Wherever you are in the world
This October marks the 10th anniversary of Linda’s kidnapping and death during a failed rescue attempt, following which the Linda Norgrove Foundation was set up by her parents.
In these 10 years the Foundation has gone from strength to strength. Thanks to our supporters, we have sent around £1.5 million to help women and children affected by the on-going war in Afghanistan.
The year after Linda’s death, we held our first big fundraiser, a 10k run/walk on the Isle of Lewis. This has become an annual event and has grown to include participants throughout the world.
Due to the uncertainty associated with Covid-19 and current restrictions on gatherings for outdoor events, this year’s 10k will be fully virtual.
Pick a good day, and run, walk or cycle wherever you are in the world any day during the first 10 days of the 10th month of the 10th year of the Foundation in memory of Linda.
Every penny raised will go to fund a young Afghan woman to study to become a doctor.
