Weʼre raising £16,000 to Help purchase a new 4x4 Wheelchair for Alex
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.
Alex has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and relies on his wheelchair to lead an independent life. His present chair has been used every single day since he got it 7 years ago, and now requires constant maintenance which is limiting his independence and causing safety issues.
On Sunday 7th July We will be taking part in the St Magnus Marathon, where we will push Alex for the entire 26.2miles- as if a marathon isn't hard enough -to raise funds for his new chair. This is not going to be an easy task, view the profile!!

Karen, this is a contribution from a friend of mine who has a disabled daughter. I told her about your appeal and she insisted on helping.
