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 will be doing the National Three Peaks challenge, with a twist. Instead of using a car to get to each mountain, I'll be using my bike. I'll have no support car or support at all, it will just be me, my bike and a bag. The trip will feature 460 miles of cycling, 20,000 feet of hills and hiking up the three highest peaks in the UK (Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis). I'd love to do this in under 50 hours, the current world record is 37 with support and a support car, so I think this is achievable! Nobody ever needed sleep anyways!
I will be raising money for the Don McMath Foundation. I have chosen this charity as I know the trustees, so I'm confident every penny raised will go towards the charity and not in some gimpy MD's pocket. The charity provides free schooling to the poorest children of all ages and backgrounds who live in the schools' catchment area. I've had to do a crowdfunding page as they do not have a just giving page, I'll provide all evidence needed to show the money has gotten to them :).
