The Royal Parks Half Marathon
A number of Tristan employees recently took part in the Royal Parks Half Marathon to raise money for the Eastside Young Leaders' Academy (EYLA).
EYLA exists to nurture and develop the leadership potential of young African and Caribbean males, empowering them to become the next generation of successful leaders. They provide educational and emotional support for boys aged 8-18, particularly those identified as being at risk of social exclusion.
EYLA is not a school but an educational and leadership development organisation, which works alongside schools to motivate and encourage students to stay in class and remain on task.
EYLA focus on respect and self worth, inculcating a culture of hard work, academic excellence and civic responsibility.
So far the Tristan team has raised a staggering £1,810.00 for the cause. If you would like to donate, please visit http://www.justgiving.com/Priyan-Manatunga
