I’m raising funds for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program, by taking part in the Brooks Brighton 10K run on November 21st.

The Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen – for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in almost 100 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.

I feel passionate about supporting the Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots program, as it’s also about promoting peace. As Dr Jane says,

“Just dare to dream of peace. Just think about what the world will be like when the time comes, as it will, when there’s no more war – that’s what Roots & Shoots is all about.”
