    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.


    I am running my first major marathon in 2019...and this is for two deserving animal charities:

    In January 2018 I volunteered for an animal rehabilitation centre in Costa Rica with my mum and it was a life changing experience. I was nervous about volunteering there as you can never tell from a website whether a charity is genuine. This place really is though. Bernal and Marielos founded the centre out of their passion and love for wounded, injured and sick animals, some that are bought as pets and then abandoned once their owners become bored or cannot look after them. The centre is very close to my heart and I want to include my marathon in continuing my fundraising for the centre since my return home.

    The story of my stay can be found on my blog: and a link to the centre's website is here:

    I regularly listen to Joe Rogan podcasts, and on the 9th February 2018 I listened to the Phil Demers podcast. This man is a truly amazing, awe inspiring human, speaking on behalf of the animals that have to endure an abhorrent cruelty filled life at Marineland, Canada. Phil highlights his personal experience at Marineland, (which did originate with him being a trainer), but the podcast also highlights cruelty inflicted at other oceanariums and how attitudes are now so changed that the captive marine mammal industry needs to stop.

    Phil has had to personally suffer so much since he bravely spoke out for these animals; through the legal battle that the owner of Marineland has inflicted upon him (Jonh Holer), and the repercussions of this including lack of employment. The link to the Joe Rogan podcast is here: and the link to Phil's gofundme page and story is here:

      I did Portland Coastal Half Marathon on Sunday and it was absolutely crazy! So windy and tough but really happy that I did it. All good prep for London marathon! medal was pretty cool too, and the event was very well organised

      I completed Endurancelife half marathon on Saturday and it pushed me to my limit: but it was an amazing experience and the thing that kept me going was thinking of the charities and training for London so I can raise money for them! I don't have any more events until the new year now, but that was definitely enough for now!

    I started running in preparation for Tough Mudder, May, 2018 in aid of Alzheimer's Society as my gran is unfortunately a victim of this horrible disease. I will be running London marathon in aid of two deserving animal charities - and would love to raise a worthy amount again!
