Tao Digital's MD to Run 260km of Desert for Lagan's Foundation

Matt Tomkin, managing director of Tao Digital, will be taking on the Wadi Rum Ultra marathon all for the excellent cause of raising money for the Lagan's Foundation. The marathon is 5 days long and will be taking place in the beautiful Southern Jordan on the 6th of October 2018. Matt will become part of a team and they will need to work together in order to complete the challenge. 

On his travels, Matt, will see all of what Wadi Rum has to offer. Famously nicknamed the Valley of the Moon this adventure will provide breathtaking views from dusty sand dunes to rocky ravines. This challenge is not for the faint of heart and only top athletes will be able to complete it.

The reason as to why Matt is taking on the Wadi Rum Ultra is to raise money for the Lagan's Foundation. It is a wonderful charity that is run by the wonderful Carren Bell. The charity was set up to provide much needed love and support for families contending with children that have acquired congenital heart defects and/or feeding difficulties. Carren Bell is all too familiar with the heartbreak of coping with these conditions when she lost her daughter, Lagan, to this seven years ago.

The charity provides a range of services for families going through the same as Carren went through like:

Respite for families, allowing primary carers of children with acquired congenital heart defects and/or feeding difficulties short rests. With excellent volunteers on hand to help out and care for the children so parents/guardians can get some much needed rest.

Providing more information to families that have just learned of a diagnosis who want more answers.

Bereavement and emotional support to these families.

"I vow to bring to parents the information they ask for, the support at home they need and the sensitivity and passion every heart parent has."
Carren Bell



Raising more awareness of the effects of congenital heart defects and feeding difficulties.

Providing more information of the importance of expressed milk donations and to encourage more people to donate.

As Carren Bell herself said:

"I vow to bring to parents the information they ask for, the support at home they need and the sensitivity and passion every heart parent has."
