Man Dances the Length of Britain in Aid of Burma
2 October 2012
A British teacher is attempting to dance the full length of Britain to raise awareness of human rights issues in Burma, according to a report by the BBC. Dressed in a neon yellow tutu, Ben Hammond, 34, set off on Aug. 13 and aims to finish later this month. “I decided to dance because it symbolizes freedom,” said Hammond, who taught refugees on the Thai-Burmese border and established LearnBurma, a registered UK charity, in 2011. His dance challenge is also raising money for Amnesty International, Burma Campaign UK, Partners Relief and Development and Prospects Burma.
