    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.


    For those of you that know me, there are probably a few things that spring to mind when you think about what I likely spend my free time doing - running is definitely not going to be one of them! However, as an early midlife crisis (perhaps) I decided to apply for a place in the London Marathon this year...

    Once i'd gotten over the shock of actually getting a spot (1 in 37 odds apparently) and realised that I'd never be able to live it down if I pulled out without at least trying, I wanted to find a really worthwhile charity to benefit from all my generous friends who will no doubt be paying huge amounts of their hard earned cash to watch me run/walk/crawl/get carried through the finish line.

    I started thinking about what was closest to me at this point in my life and the obvious answer that came to mind was Sophia, my 14 month old daughter. Myself and Hannah have been lucky enough that, to date, Sophia has been a super healthy little girl and hasn't had any need for care from the likes of hospitals and doctors. However, the great work that Great Ormond Street Hospital does, day in and day out, is massively important to many families and the reassurance that there are great organisations like this to help should we ever need them made it the perfect choice in my mind to raise money for.

    Thank you for any donations received... if nothing else this marathon should be a laugh for you all to hear about after!

    My employer, Google, will also match anything raised so a great incentive to give generously!!
