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.
Myself along with roughly 15 other women are taking part in the 3 peak challenge in September 2019.
We are aiming to complete the challenge in 48hours. Choosing September next year gives us just over a year to train and Get fit. Most of you know I am a couch potato so I am determined to take part and complete this challenge and get fit into the bargain. My own son was born with Psuedoacondroplasia and is of small stature and has scoliosis also. He has endured many operations since he was 5 years old and now osteoarthritis has started. He does not complain although he cannot walk any distance and gets frustrated at the ignorance of others.
This challenge is to raise money for the Dwarf Sports Association, where they need the funding so children who are short in stature can take part in different sports throughout the country that they normally cannot take part in. The money raised helps families on low incomes allow their children to take part in orginised event's. Although my son does not participate in these sports I feel it is a charity very close to my heart and I need to become involved.
