Its my 3rd round of crowdfunding and its all going amazingly well. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated already!! This is all about my Brother and Sister, who we lost in 2003 and 2010. I am trying to raise money for Hospiscare in Exeter and Dereifords ICU dept in Plymouth. Both places were amazing in these dark times for my family. If I can give something back which helps just 1 person or family in the future it will all be worth it.
I am doing a 4 run challenge, a 5k, a 10k, a half marathon and a full marathon, it all started in Jan this year and the idea is to complete it by the end of 2018. All monies donated will go to these 2 amazing places. I have completed the 1st two elements and the 3rd is due in Oct 17 with the great west run in Exeter, all the donations received really do push me on and inspire me to get it done.
My sister died in 2003 after a massive head trauma, the ICU dept at Derriford did all they could but sadly couldn't bring Chrissy back to us, the help and treatment we all received will never be forgotton. My Brother was diagnosed with secondary liver cancer and passed in 2010, Hospiscare in Exeter were simply amazing from day 1, when the time came they made sure that myself and my parents were present and offered so much help after Ricky left us.
These places just deserve so so much help and if this fundraising can help just 1 person and family avoid the pain and heart ache that we went through then it will all be 100% totally worth it.
So guys please please help and donate all you can and help this become a reality. If you have donated before I thank you from the bottom of my heart but why not do it again and enjoy that great fluffy feeling you get when you do 😁.
Thanks for reading this epic and together we can all make a difference!!!!
