Good Samaritan Home

Hi, thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page. Through you can make safe and secure donations to sponsor me. The proceeds of your support are immediately sent directly to my charity. Using this given platform is really simple and most importantly it's also a really cost efficient way for the charity to raise funds. My page allows you to follow my progress; share it with friends; voice encouragement or even join me and get involved yourself! I will be taking part in the legendary Badwater Ultramarathon (217km single stage) in 15-17/07/2013 and aiming to raise money for Good Samaritan Home. This will be the first time in Malaysian running history that we have a Malaysian runner participating in this prestigious event, which will be held in the "driest, hottest and lowest" part of North America, the desert in Death Valley. Many times, this event has been voted/selected/named as one of the toughest races in the world. I am a 51 years old Malaysian, who started running (barefoot) when I was 20 years old. As of May 2013, I have completed 102 full/ultramarathons (70full, 32 ultra) in 55 cities on 31 countries/states. I am the first Malaysian to have run the coldest marathons in North Pole and Antarctica, and the hottest in Sahara Deserts in Morocco and Tunisia. I have also run Great Wall Marathon in China, and the world's highest marathon at Tenzing Hillary Everest marathon in Nepal. I am also the first Malaysian to have run 100 miles races, and ultramarathons of over 200km (222km in India, 240km in Australia and most recently in Apr 2013, the 250k Sakura Michi Nature Run in Japan). As a result, I have now qualified and been invited to run in this prestigious event, the Badwater Ultramarathon in United States this coming July 15-17th. I would like to call on your support of my participation in this race by way of donation to the charity I have chosen, the Good Samaritan Home. All donation will go 100% to this charity, as I will personally bear all the race expenses which includes flights, accommodation, food, hiring of support vehicle for my support crew and myself. Please dig deep and donate, every little counts! Seow Kong Ng
