raised of £500 target by 26 supporters

    Weʼve raised £450 to Several good causes that have helped me these include Asthma, EDS,Epilepsy they are all in need of extra help to support others like me.

    Funded on Wednesday, 31st July 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    I am Gem and I have dragged my wife into taken part but I know she is doing it to support me. I am in a wheelchair so to take part in the colour rush event I have had to get so many emails to agree I could it's stupid and some would of been put off but not me... That just makes me more determined, some of my friends will be wishing I would just behave, some will be loving that I won't just give up and some well they just love me. All that matters is that Katie and I get round in one piece and we will.
    I have several chronic illnesses that I have to deal with daily and some do try to kill me daily too. Some of my conditions are well known like Asthma but I also have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome which is not so well known.
    This means they don't get they actual funding they should for research purposes to help people like myself.
    I raise awareness where I can about all my conditions and also how my life has been affected by being sick so I'd I can help others I will. Some of you guys ask me what you can do for me well you can support me do this if you like. I am excited about raising money for multiple places to get as much to them as I can as they deserve the support.

    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!
