UK Young Leader Talia Jacobs Treks 100km to Raise £2,000 for ALEH

From May 25-26, Talia Jacobs, a member of the Young Leadership Committee of the British Friends of ALEH, tackled the storied 100 km “London to Brighton Challenge” to raise funds for the children of ALEH. Walking day and night without a wink of sleep, Talia spent the entirety of her Bank Holiday weekend trekking from the capital to the coast. Though she considered throwing in the towel at times and had to push through the pain and ward off exhaustion, Talia summoned the strength to charge forward, knowing that by pushing her limits, she would afford the children of ALEH opportunities to do the same. Through grit and determination, Talia reached the finish line on the Brighton seaside, successfully raising £2,000 to provide medical equipment for the ALEH residents, a persistent urgent need. We are awestruck by Talia’s strength of spirit and immensely grateful for her incredible generosity!
