I'm inspired by the work of Mark Hughes Foundation and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Borneo Coast to Coast 2018. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Mark Hughes Foundation, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
