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 have personally had help and support from KDARS for kids when my youngest son was diagnosed with grade 5 Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) in his left kidney, he was 4 months old, this was found during my pregnancy at 28 weeks. At 6 months old we found out that he had 9% function in his left kidney and 91% in his right kidney.
When he was just over a year old on the 16th December 2016 he had his left kidney removed. Without the support of KDARs I would have struggled.
So I am raising money to help support families of children who have CKD or other renal issuses as there are many hospital visits and stays which hit families hard financially on top of the emotional strain. So to do this I will be running the Grimsby 10k on the 21st July 2019 and the ABP costal half marathon on 15th September 2019

So I’m training for these events and today’s training has gone well. Just over 5km ran, not my best time but keeping pushing myself to run faster and further so I can complete my challenges

About the fundraiser
Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire
I’m a mum of 2 boys both of them have kidney problems. KDARs have been a huge support for me. I took up running in May 2018 to help my stress levels and improve my health. After completing a 5k race I decided to push myself further and support those who have supported me
