Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
for those that aren't yet aware: Henry Hayes, a much loved father, husband, uncle, brother and "top man" had an accident and fell in July 2017. Henry sustained a bleed on the brain, which resulted in severe brain trauma. Henry spent a lengthy 7 months in intensive care, at one point, we were told there was nothing more that could be done to help our dear Henry. With the heart of an Ulsterman, giving in is not in his blood, Henry showed true courage and strength to pull through and slowly but surely, regain his personality, mannerisms, motor skills and love of Horse racing.
I am raising money to help get our Henry in his own home, where he can live in comfort and dignity, with his loving wife, children and cats, I am giving it my all for this final hurdle. Henry Hayes is the bravest man I have ever known, I am proud to call him my uncle and forever friend.
I'd like to take this opportunity to personally thank all of the individuals that have supported us as a family through their donations, their words and their visits to Henry. I thank these individuals as often as I can in person. There are 2 families in particular, I would like to give a personal thank you to. These families are both the Corrigans and the McMahons. Our dad's grew up together, from different parts of the UK, different sides of the political landscape and different sides of the “old firm” they became great friends, as a result, us kids became great friends and we support each other in ways our grandfathers would be proud of.
It is for this reason that I will be running the Greater Manchester half Marathon, in a CELTIC shirt. Football rivalry is insignificant, when your heart is broken, and your rivals give you more love than you can imagine. Please, share my page and donate if you can. I love my uncle, and to me, this is something I would really love to do. Thank you

thanks to all of you for donating and supporting in your own ways. an admin error resulted in my racepack being incorrect, and my entry has now been moved to SUNDAY 13TH OCTOBER. I'm a bit gutted to have to wait longer, but we've got more time to fundraise and I can go for an even faster finish! Thanks again Anthony Hayes
