What is crowdfunding?

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‘ve challenged myself to complete a Marathon, 26 miles, but my knees arent what they used to be! So, how about doing it on a bike? Too easy? Add 3900ft of elevation, take it off road, over a mountain or two in the Calder valley and you have The Calder Valley Mountain Bike Marathon!

Dave Beal (Danny's dad) is one of my friends and his 12 year old son Daniel, died suddenly in June 2017. After hearing about the charity and the unbelievable work that they are doing, in the most tragic and incomprehensible circumstances, I wanted to try and do what I can to raise funds and awareness. I have complete admiration for him and what the charity is achieving in Danny's memory.

Danny was a keen sportsman, an especially good rugby player, and always threw himself heart and soul into any sporting activity. In school work as well as at play, Danny always gave his best and approached every endeavour with an attitude and mind-set dedicated to fulfilling his potential. Always cheerful, Danny led from the front and became a role model and inspiration to his peers.

In his memory, Dave decided to establish a charity foundation that aims to help school students to maximise their potential in the way Danny always did. Using sports coaching to connect with students, we aim to use the values and attitudes common to many sports, to influence students in their approach to classroom learning.

“This undertaking is going to become my life from now on. I promised Danny that I'd fight to leave him a legacy that he'd be proud of, and I believe this is it. We're in the early stages of planning and will be looking for all kinds of assistance in the coming months. Check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information and contact us if you feel you can help in any way.”
