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.
Apart from the odd Cross Country session at school I’ve never been much of a runner, so this is a huge challenge for me to say the least. (Although I did run from one pub to another on New Year‘s day so there‘s that) After recently becoming a parent myself I wanted to chose a charity that benefits children. Radio Borders Cash for Kids raises money for disabled and disadvantaged children in the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland. All the money goes to children and young people under 18 throughout the region, with mental, physical or sensory disabilities, with behavioural or psychological disorders, living in poverty or situations of deprivation, suffering through distress, abuse or neglect. So far the money raised has helped go towards equipment for disabled children amd has provided Christmas presents for children who otherwise would wake up to nothing on Christmas day amongst other things. Please spare a few pounds to sponser me, its a brilliant cause and the support would make sure I dont crash and burn on the day!
