The Valtos 10k

The Linda Norgrove Foundation has now held four successful 10k events in consecutive years. On 6 October 2014 people took part in the UK, mainland Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and even on an oil rig off Equatorial Guinea, to name a few!

It is a great opportunity for friends and supporters all over the world to get together and remember Linda whilst raising funds for the foundation.
