Mother’s Bridge of Love, a UK charity supporting adopted Chinese children in the UK and China, is calling for runners to participate in the coming Edinburgh Marathon, raising fund for the charity.

Mother’s Bridge of Love (MBL) MBL is a charity that aims to share Chinese culture and help Chinese children in China and the UK. Founded by the renowned writer Xinran (Good Women of China, Sky Burial), this charity has been providing many services for Chinese children in the UK, such as art workshops, language courses, and support and helps for the adopted Chinese children and their families. It is also raising funds for Chinese children in poor rural areas of China to better their living conditions and provide education opportunities.

Two runners, Wang Mei and James Barrie, have already established a group of people who will participate in Edinburgh Marathon Relay (27 May 2007), raising fund for MBL. They are now calling for more runners to join them. A Relay team is consist of 4 runners, each of them will run for about 6.5 miles (10 kilometers). They hope having more runners will raise more fund for the charity. In their letters calling for support and sponsorship, they said, “Your support and sponsorship are very important for MBL to continue its work on helping the Chinese orphans and the British families adopting them, to build cultural bridge between China and the UK, and to sustain and further improve its services to Chinese children in both countries. “
