Weʼre raising £250 to fund new kit and clothing for our 2011 (7 yr olds) team, with 50% towards feeding local kids who don't get fed at home
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.
Some people have a "face for the radio"...well, I have a body for walking, maybe driving. Certainly not for running. I'm also pretty lazy when it comes to keeping fit. Fat Dad, Robbie calls me. A lot.
So, a marathon is a big deal for me. Training has now reached the agonising stage, with weekly long runs exceeding 25km. I've not quite been in tears yet, but I have cried out loud a few times towards the end of a run, scared a few Grannies. The sub-zero temperatures haven't exactly helped either! Only a few weeks to go now though, and I've bought the flights so I can't back out either. Disappointingly my body shape hasn't changed much...Mo Salah i'm not. I still look like i've eaten Mo Salah.
I wasn't going to do sponsorship, but if I can contribute towards the funds for new kit and equipment for our 7 year olds, why not? Spartans FC also do a lot for local kids, for instance feeding those who don't get fed at home, so 50% the money raised will go towards that.
