Weʼre raising £500 to Support a 5-year-old Krzys, in need of unrefunded stem cell administration due to cerebral palsy.

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

Krzys is a Spark. Just look at this smile and those beautiful eyes.... :)

But he needs lots of help to bloom and share his light. Born in 34th week of pregnancy in severe asphyxia, with a birth weight of 1700 grams, second degree intraventricular stroke and cerebral palsy. His fantastic parents work really hard to support his development. His treatment is considered innovative and experimental, and therefore the parents need to cover 100% of the cost. (Charity page). The therapy is bringing amazing results, Krzys is learning to walk, control his movements, maybe even talk one day...

I met Krzys's mum when my first son, Benji, was born. She was my rock in the challenging first months as a mum, her love to my son was instant and beautiful. Now Benji is 10 years old and the tables have turned - her son needs my support.

So....

Me and Benji have set ourselves a challenge of a cycle, all the from Bristol to London's Big Ben (Map) . 140 miles of a maximum effort, from one little boy to another. We will leave Bristol on the 25th May, plan to arrive in London 28th May. Impressed? I know I am!

Every penny raised here will directly support stem cells administration and rehabilitation of our little Spark. Please help us help Krzys!

We will publish more about our training, preparation and then report how we are getting on. The final picture with a Big Ben will be a cherished reward for us, as much as the funds raised for Krzys!

    So just a quick update. I was away for the weekend, but Benji trained hard. We are talking to the producer of the bike (the name will be revealed once they confirm their sponsorship offer. Also, the amazing Sarah Rice from the best independent PR agency in Bristol has got on board and will support us in promoting the ride and Krzys's story. Let's rock the boat a little! :)

    Just a massive thank you for everyone who has already decided to support our case, sharing the word and donating! We have reached out to a few potential sponsors, as well as BBC West (tentatively interested in our story) so hopefully more publicity coming! I am highly motivated to make it work! :)

I'm a 43-year-old mum of 2 boys currently living and working in Bristol, UK. I love cycling, therefore my 10-year old son Benji and I have chosen a bike trip all the way from Bristol to London as our charity fundraising challenge.
