    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    A few years ago, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with a very rare genetic disease which means he's in constant pain and will face heart and spinal surgery for his whole life.
    There are hardly a handful of doctors in the world, let alone the UK who understand his condition which makes treatment and support of his symptoms very difficult.
    Lee is an unbelievably strong and brave man. I can't begin to imagine how hard it must be and yet positivity and lust for life shines through his beautiful soul.
    I'm going to train for a triathlon to help raise money and awareness and to help make the lives of those with it easier.

      Sooo...my final update! (Hurrah, I hear you say!) I l am very proud to say I finished my first tri! After a very wobbly start in the pool (I nearly quit 4 lengths in), I had a good chat to myself and pushed on. I'm so happy that I did! Physically and emotionally challenging but I would recommend it to anyone who's up for a challenged. Wonderful support and atmosphere from my fellow racers and my wonderful friends and family who came to watch. Needless to say, I cried at the end! Sooooo... london tri next.... who's up for it?! Happy Sunday 😘😘

      Blimey! There's some love going on here! Thank you all so much (to the anons too!) for the donations... I didn't think I'd raise this much; its very overwhelming. A quick update... I picked up an injury just over a week ago which is lovely, all from trying to change my run from "running like a girl" to something a bit more productive. It's quite painful taking the stairs but oddly enough doesn't seem to hurt when running/cycling/swimming so onwards and upwards! If you see me hobbling around, you know why! Have a lovely week all xx
