Running MdS for a Purpose: BECKY OLIVER

For what charity or cause are you running the 2008 Marathon des Sables?

I am supporting the Butterfly Foundation, a community based charitable organisation that supports eating disorder sufferers and their carers through direct financial relief, advocacy and lobbying, awareness campaigns, health promotion and early intervention work and professional training in primary and secondary schools.

Why did you decide to run with a purpose?

The cost of treating sufferers of an eating disorder is extremely costly with fees running into hundreds of thousands over a period of years, meaning many sufferers go untreated as they can not afford the access to treatment that they need. The Butterfly Foundation works towards helping these individuals.

How can people contribute?
