£3,500raised of £1,700 target by 140 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,500 to help raise funds for Belle, an inspirational girl with interstitial lung disease, by running the Cardiff Half Marathon!

    Haverfordwest, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 8th October 2017

    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.


    We are running the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise funds to help support an amazing 8 year old girl called Belle who is on the waiting list for a lung transplant. You can follow Belle's story on Facebook

    We are members, honarary members and friends of Haverfordwest Ladies Circle and very few of us have run further than 5k before. This is a personal challenge for many of us, but Belle is an inspiration that we all want to support.

    We would like to raise enough money for Belle for her to have a super chair that is designed for her needs and will help her get about easier and be more comfortable.

    Belle has an interstitial lung disease.
    Her lovely Mum Stella is used to explaining what this is and she says basically in Belles case her lungs are not spongey like ours, they are stiff and hard - and very scarred from the condition, it makes breathing a huge effort so she pants very quickly all the time, probably 3 times faster than other children. As you can imagine this is exhausting so she relies on a wheelchair to get about and it uses up masses of calories which then cause the issue of weight loss. Belle takes lots of steroids every day, antibiotics, anti inflammatory drugs, anti acid , vitamin D, and various puffers , these all help to soften the lungs but have side effects too - one being loss of appetite. Due to a recent infection Belle now needs oxygen 24/7 which has been difficult to get used to - but she takes it all in her stride .

    Please please support us on our run and donate as much as you can to help support Belle. Every penny she receives will be used to help make her more comfortable and happy, she so deserves it!

      We all want to say a massive THANK YOU to all of our supporters, your donations mean so much and will really make a difference to Belle and her family. We had a fabulous weekend in Cardiff and the rain stayed away for the race. It was an amazing event to be part of, the supporters and volunteers along the course were fantastic and really kept us going and we all completed the course to be met by Belle with times that made us proud. It was an emotional day but so worth all the training and all the aches and pains afterwards. THANK YOU!
