    Weʼve raised £375 to campaign for Dignity in Dying - Beth's Manchester Half Marathon 2019

    Funded on Sunday, 2nd June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On 19 May 2019, I will be running the Manchester Simplyhealth Half Marathon in support of Dignity in Dying's campaign for an assisted dying law to be introduced in the UK.

    Every 8 days, a terminally ill UK citizen travels to Switzerland seeking assistance to die, costing on average £10,000 and often earlier than they would choose in fear that they will not be able to make the journey later. Each year 300 terminally ill people end their own lives in the UK using distressing and unregulated means, and often alone in fear that their loved ones will face prosecution by association.

    Dignity in Dying advocates a safeguarded, transparent assisted dying law where:

    - Mentally competent adults suffering with a terminal illness and less than 6 months to live;

    - Are afforded the option to control their death by drug self-administration;

    - Following careful assessment by doctors and a High Court judge who explore their motivations.

    Since 1997, a similar model has existed in Oregon and there have been no cases of abuse, no extension of the law and no ‘slippery slope’ cases.

    After years of the law affording them autonomy and rights over their lives, terminally ill people deserve the choice to control the timing and manner of their death – when death is inevitable, suffering should not be.

    Please help me to support the campaign for compassionate legislative change and thank you so much for any donations!

      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 nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
