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 am fortunate to have been teaching at Erdington Hall School for 22 years. We now find, due to Government funding cuts, our school is facing a critical funding crisis. This has motivated me to take on the challenge of running a marathon. These miles will be run throughout the month of May. I am not a runner but due to an accident I can no longer pursue my passion of horse riding so have decided to channel my energy into raising money to provide much needed resources for our children by running 26.2 miles. Please support me by donating what you can.

A very thoughtful initiative, would be great if we can get some of the kids involved and maybe do a sponsored walk one afternoon collectively for the school. Best of luck 👍🏽
