I am running in the Great North Run to raise funds for CLEFT - a charity close to my heart. Being a former cleft patient myself, I am connected to CLEFT in many ways.

CLEFT is a UK based international charity focused on providing permanent, sustainable ways to improve cleft care both in the UK and overseas.

Money raised will fund charity’s two main objectives of sponsorship of research projects in the UK and supporting projects in lower-income countries to help provide long-term treatment and care for less privileged people born with clefts.

Great North Run on 10th Sept 2023, will be my fifth fund raising half marathon for CLEFT, having taken part in Royal Parks Half Marathon in London on four occasions.

With your assistance, I hope I will be able to reach my fund raising target!

Thank you very much for your donation and for your support

With warm regards

Mahen Mahen Bulumulla
