Weʼre raising £800 to help send children diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis on holidays they would never normally be able to go on.
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.
Quite last minute but I saw a half marathon pop up next month in Barcelona and thought I would use the opportunity to try and raise money for a good cause.
The Charity I'm trying to raise funds for are the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund. They help provide children diagnosed with this illness with well deserved holidays around the world, giving them relief from the day to day struggles they and their families have to go through when battling this disease.
A statement from their site says:
'Our purpose at the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund is to provide children with Cystic Fibrosis and their families an opportunity to spend quality time together. Kids with Cystic Fibrosis never get a break from the arduous daily routine of hours of physiotherapy, 50+ pills and nebulisers twice daily which are essential to maintain health and even this doesn’t guarantee they won’t get sick. Frequent, unpredictable hospitalisations are the norm which makes holding down a job difficult for parents, leaving incomes stretched and holidays often impossible to afford. Life expectancy is currently in the thirties but far too many children are still dying in their teens and twenties. This creates challenges for the mental wellbeing of all family members. Our holidays and grants help families create happy memories while they can.'

My younger cousin has been diagnosed with this condition since a young age, and this fundraiser is in support of him, but the money will go directly to the fund who provide support to children around the UK well spent time with their families outside hospital walls.
Thank you for donating!
