    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    Throughout our careers we have both raced internationally in cross country skiing and have won a number of national rollerski races. Currently we both work within the sport and fitness industry full time.

    Our aim is to create a highly successful model to promote the sport within primary school children. Ultimately, we would like to get the children enjoying the sport whilst learning.Our aim is to encourage mini athletes to carry on with the sport in the future. We could even find potential Winter Olympians.

    So far we are very excited to have secured three weekly after school rollerski sessions, which will start in January. We will offer quality, new equipment with trained and experienced coaches. Sessions will be for beginners with students learning new skills and techniques through drills and games (stuck in the mud, tag etc). Current classes will focus on year's 1-5 and we aim to expand into more school in the future.

      Massive thank you to everyone who has donated and supported our schools rollerski project. We now have lots of children taking up the sport on a weekly basis and our aim is to increase this number every term. Here's to a great future in childrens rollerskiing in the Thames Valley area.

      We are so excited to show everyone an example of the new mini boots we have just received from Rollerski Co. It's not too late to get involved and help us fund the rollerskiers/ cross country skiers of the future grassroots pathway we have created. Please help by either sharing the page to raise awareness of our goals or donate if you can. Many thanks Steph and Jordan

      I would have loved to have made it today but my idea to combine it with a 10k trail run at 10am I'd already booked turned out to be crazy. As penance, I've donated £20 to the cause.
