Xtreme Runners for Phase Worldwide

This donation was made in 2015

The Xtreme Everest team ran the Bournemouth Marathon in 2015. Called Xtreme Runners, the team consisted of return runners Mike, Kay and David along with several other friends and colleagues.

All the runners took on their own personal challenge of either 5K, 10K, half marathon or full marathon, all with the common goal of raising much needed funds for Phase Worldwide, supporting their Phase Nepal arm. The team aimed to raise £10,000 upwards to support a health post in the Humla region for a year, which will help to provide public health education and access to basic primary health and maternal care.

In the Humla Region, far west Nepal, one in every 17 children will die before their first birthday and one in every 13 children will die before he or she turns five. This region has the highest proportion of women in Nepal who report receiving no anti-natal care at 35%. 24% of women have an unmet need for contraception and only 29% of baby deliveries are attended by skilled personnel.

In 2014 we raised nearly £2000 for the Sherpas that have supported us over the last ten years we have been running research studies in Nepal, from running the Bournemouth Marathon
