Tim’s Solo Marathon in aid of the BBS


View Map


June 21, 2020

This event has ended.

New BBS member, Tim Dawkins, recently joined the BBS after moving to the Bay Area in December with his work at the World Economic Forum. Originally from West Dorset, England he moved to the US in 2015.

“As soon as I learned about the BBS, its mission really resonated with me – having been an expat for a little while now, I know it can be incredibly tough at times living abroad without a safety net. I hope this run can raise awareness of the support available and funds to help those in need.”

Tim had been training to run the SF Marathon this summer. Though the marathon was postponed, Tim is not allowing his training to go to waste. He has chosen the BBS as his charity of choice to raise funds and awareness of the organization. All at the BBS are keen to get behind Tim.
