Ilda Muschamp Atkinson
“In July my son Michael Volunteered and completed the Westminster 10K run in London, he was very proud to represent Belize because Belize is a commonwealth country. The run was to support the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund, a charity that raises funds to send young girls to gain a good education and in so doing empower these young girls to be agents of change. He met other runners from across the country whose sole purpose on that day was to raise as much money for this great cause. Additionally after Michael’s return to England from his participation in the Belize National Team in Panama he continued his military duties and continued to play football with the senior Royal Air Force Team; they won the 2016-2017 Royal Air Force Cup. As a result of his outstanding performance in the Championship finals he was selected to play for the senior British Forces Team which includes selected players from the Army, Navy and Air Force. We are proud of Michael’s Achievement and look forward to his safe return from the Falkland Islands.”
