    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    I am aiming to raise as much as possible for my mum's local Parkinson's group.

    I am doing the Chester Marathon in October 2017. Aswell as other runs starting with the blackpool 10K on 7th May.

    People who know me, they will know that the only place I run to is the fridge for a beer or food!!

    I am running for a great cause and to raise awareness for Parkinson's disease. This has affected my mum for the last 6 years. To see the struggles that she goes through some days are really hard. My mum is strong and does not let this affect her as much as possible as she still does the things she loves when she can. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's and we want to make a change to that.

    All money raised will go to my mum's local Parkinson's group which will help them go a long long way.

    Please donate to a great cause and raise awareness for Parkinson's

      Evening all, Well what an amazing response I have had from everyone. So far £630.00 has been raised. I am hoping to touch the £700.00 mark now. I'm shocked with all the support I have received so far from everyone. A little slow on my training due to a knee injury but I will complete the marathon and I am ready to take on the challenge. I have had donations of people who I haven't seen or spoken to in over 17 years so thank you all for your continued support. I can't wait to present the cheque to my mum's Parkinsons Group.

      So my initial target was £300.00. Through everyone's kind donations, I have managed to get past this target. I have now set a new target with a twist. The new target is £600. However, if I hit this target I will be doing the Chester Marathon (26.2 Miles) in fancy dress. I would like to thank all who have donated so far... please keep liking and sharing my page to raise as much as possible for this amazing charity.

    I am running the Chester Marathon (26.2 miles) in October 2017 for a charity which is very close to my heart. My mum has suffered from Parkinsons since April 2011 and currently there is no cure for Parkinsons. I am raising awareness for this.
