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.

    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

    Running challenge update - Halfway through! May-June: 375 km covered (target 320 km). Total 1093 km this year. The end of June marks the midpoint of my challenge and, although I'm on track, I'm definitely feeling the burn! I rounded off May in South America and managed to run through the streets of Buenos Aires and on the Copacabana in Rio which was amazing. 🏖️ In June I hit a personal best for kilometres run in a month (209). Much love ❤️❤️❤️ Bernie

    Running challenge update April: 185 km covered (target 165 km). Total 717 km this year. Four months down and it's fair to say that I'm already knackered! April was a pretty decent month for the weather but was also very tough on my feet and legs. I lost a couple of toenails and ended up with bad cramp on several occasions! A massive thanks you to everyone who has donated towards my fund-raiser for Help Bristol Homeless so far. You guys rock! :) Bernie

I'm Bernie. I'm a keen runner and have lived in Bristol for 9 years of my life. Moving into the centre recently has made me aware of how bad the homeless situation is. I would like to do whatever I can to make a difference.
