Weʼre raising £500 to ride the Coast 2 Coast cycle route in a day to raise funds for Leeds Children's Hospital Ward 52 and Motor Neurone Disease Association
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.
Myself and Stu Nutting are going to ride the Coast 2 Coast route from Whitehaven to Sunderland in one day. It is 129 miles and contains approximately 11,500ft of climbing
We are aiming to raise money for Leeds Children's Hospital Ward 52 and Motor Neurone Disease Association.
My daughter, Hollie, has recently been, and still is under the care of Leeds Children's Hospital. At 14 months of age she had major reconstructive skull surgery to reconstruct a suture that had fused early. Fortunately she is recovering well and improving day by day.
Leeds Children's Hospital have been fantastic in the care they have offered. They are one of only 6 Hospitals that offer this surgery in the UK and they cover all of the Yorkshire area.
The play area for all of the patients at the Hospital are reliant on charity donations. It makes the long days, weeks and months that some of the children spend there a little more bearable for them. We would like to be able to contribute towards the improvement of the play area for future children at the Hospital.
Stu and myself work with a colleague who has been effected by Motor Neurone Disease. Tommo's wife, Lisa, is suffering with Motor Neurone Disease. He has remained a power of strength at work, despite caring for Lisa on a daily basis.
Motor Neurone Disease Association have given help and support to Tommo and his family since Lisa's diagnosis. We would like to help the charity continue their work with Tommo and other families that are effected by this cruel disease.
All money raised will be split 50/50 between Leeds Children's Hospital Ward 52 and Motor Neurone Disease Association.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
