Nick has been coming to Nepal since shortly after the earthquake in 2015. It was the first race he sculpted for the Impact Marathon Series, and his love for this country can be seen in every detail of the race week. He has travelled far and wide across the country searching out the perfect spots to bring the country to life in a truly unique way. Nick drives the energy all week and can regularly be found skipping through the village pretending he is not in a hurry!
Urgen is one of the most influential operators in the development of children across Nepal. An instant connector, he is working to bring the many charities of the country together to maximise each one’s effectiveness. Always creative, imaginative, good natured and, well, late! It is fair to say that you haven’t truly visited Nepal until you’ve eaten one of his homemade Momos – and you won’t be able to stop at just one…
If he’s not halfway up Everest, or flying around the backstreets of Kathmandu on his bike, you’ll find him tending the fields in his village of Batase. One of the craziest men in Nepal, his energy is hilarious and his ability to make pizza in the most unexpected of places is legendary. Dinesh will be the leader of the week in our host community and his passion for Batase is so clear. He also claims to be an amazing trail runner, but we are yet to see evidence of this.
Burns Violence Survivors
With 56k of burns cases a year and only 2 hospital ward dedicated, this is a powerful project that goes right to the heart of Nepali culture. Not only tackling the care, but the prevention – a huge challenge when faced with the task of tackling domestic abuse and the use of acid in such attacks. Since starting the Nepal Impact Marathon we have funded 15 life-saving surgeries for burns victims, and with your support we can really ramp that up this year. This is not an issue that has easy solutions, it’s not a topic that most larger organisations can prioritise, but someone has to. We love the passion and compassion of this tiny team, with tiny overheads. We love how our funds have the tangible impact of genuinely saving lives, one at a time.
We have already begun work installing Childreach programs into the Batase schools. The headmaster and community are fully supporting the plans that are catalysing change in the community. The simple fact is children should be #TaughtNotTrafficked. We love how Childreach have a holistic approach to handling this issue – by sculpting programs inside and outside the classroom. It’s not about just attendance in school, its about engagement in school. The Childreach projects use sports as a tool for development and aim to provide not just technical skills, but support the holistic development of children through sports activities. The programme aims to reduce dropout rates in the schools, to prevent child from being trafficking, indulging in unsafe migration and any other form of child abuse children may face once they drop out of school. It also focuses on bringing equality among the community regardless of gender, race and economic background of the family.
