Weʼre raising £1,500 to Help various charities between Swansea and Blackburn
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.
What started as a joke has become reality so here it goes...
On Sunday May 5th the 2 football teams i have always supported will play each other. And to raise money for several charities i have decided to run to the game. Only problem is the game is in Blackburn!!
Yes i will be running from the Liberty Stadium in Swansea to Ewood Park in Blackburn, running approx 200 miles across 7 days. Why? Apart from being an idiot, there are a few charities id like to help so i thought why not do something a bit different and a bit special.
The charities which i will be raising money for are spread between Blackburn and Swansea -
- Blackburn Rovers Community Trust. BRCT do so much work in their local community and not just through sport.
- Singleton Hospital Neonatal & Special Care Baby Unit in Swansea. My cousin had her son last year and he was 12 weeks premature. The care from the staff during and afterwards was outstanding.
- Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre (LWNC). As above i'm sure the work the staff do at this centre is remarkable.
- Swansea Stormers Down Syndrome Football Team. Some of you may know i'm lucky enough to coach a local down syndrome team. The joy the players get from a simple game of football is amazing.
Thank you in advance to everyone who donates and supports me during this challenge. Ill keep you all updated on the training and all the injuries im about to get.
