    Bristol
    Funded on Tuesday, 8th January 2019

    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.

    Story

    In Bristol city centre the homeless situation is especially bad right now. People are freezing, trying to scrape a few quid for a hot drink or sandwich. Recently I learnt about a local charity a Help Bristol's Homeless whose core mission is to create accommodation for homeless folk. They seem like caring, practical people and worthy of the support of anyone who wants to see change on our streets.

    Anything you can give to help out this worthy cause is very appreciated.

    My Goal

    My plan is to run 2000 km over the course of the year in support of Help Bristol's Homeless; this is about a marathon in distance per week!

    I have distance checkpoints that I have to achieve every month. You can see them here. You can also check out my training log here.

    Updates

    January. (185 km covered, target 170 km). A really tough month! January has been a month of running in nasty conditions, getting cold, wet and very muddy. But I've also got to know a great new group of people; the Southville running club! My first run with them was in a torrential downpour and I succeeded in getting several blisters. I haven't been put off though and have been running regularly with the group.

      That's it! Over 2018, I've run in 4 different countries, put my running shoes 136 times and spent a total of 186 hours (almost 8 days) out running. I've run in dark, wet, freezing, muddy and scolding conditions. It's been really tough and I'm very proud to finally complete it and raise money for a homeless charity I really believe in. Cheers ❤️ Bernie

      September to November ~440 km covered]. Total 1870 km this year. My apologies for taking so long to post here. With buying a house and sickness, September through to November has been a blur. There were a couple of points where I was pretty certain that I would be dropping out of this challenge. I'm so thankful of the support of those around me, especially Lucy, who helped me reach the finish line. On a more positive note, one of my local homeless friends got a job at a local pub (Wild Beer) in October and an apartment! Much love Bernie

      Running challenge update! July-August: 332 km covered (target 325 km). Total 1423 km this year. July marked a low point in my running this year with 10 days on stomach problems leading to my lowest month for total distance so far. In August I got my shoes back on and made up for lost time getting more than 200 km done. Massive thanks once again to everyone who has donated so far. I still have about half of my target to reach so please consider donating if you have anything at all that you can spare. Much love ❤️❤️❤️ Bernie
