Again this year, Sinead Naughton, owner of The Churchill Tavern and NoMad Alliance board member, and her staff are running/jogging/walking in the annual Concern Spring Run on April 8th. Sinead is a strong supporter of Concern Worldwide, and she and her team has made participation in the Spring Run an annual commitment.
Sinead told Experience NoMad, “I’m sure you may have seen that a famine has been declared in South Sudan. Concern Worldwide is one of the prominent organizations working there, where one million men, women, and children are at risk of famine due to a brutal civil war. Supporting Concern’s work in the poorest countries on earth is why we do this every year and I am unashamed to ask for support from everyone I know.”

So if you’re lacing up, we’ll see you at the starting line and if you’re donating, we’ll raise a glass to you after the race!
Concern Worldwide works in the 26 poorest countries in the world to help eliminate extreme poverty. Over 92% of every dollar raised goes directly to their programs overseas. Concern’s mission is to help those living in absolute poverty achieve major improvements in their lives. They focus on the key areas of Emergency Response, Health and Nutrition, and Climate Response and Resilience. To learn more about Concern visit concernusa.org.
