Weʼve raised £30 to help towards Jo-Marie Lawrence's medical costs. Alice's cousin Jo fell in a skiing accident in Canada on Xmas Eve injuring her spinal cord.

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'm running the Sheffield half-marathon to raise money for Alice's cousin, Jo-Marie, who was in an horrific skiing accident in Canada on Christmas Eve, damaging the spinal cord in her neck.
She did not have travel insurance and her medical bills in Canada have reached the hundreds of thousands.
They should not have to worry about money whilst in this situation so I want to raise a contribution for their Gofundme page. On that page you can also read updates on Jo's progress.
One third of the money I raise will go to the Matthew Good Foundation, which runs charitable projects from Yorkshire to India and everywhere in between.
All my efforts will be in memory of Matthew Good and Rob 'Basshound' Holmes.
