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.
This fundraiser is in memory of Lewis Kirby AKA Mr Push Through ❤️
Anyone that was lucky enough to know Lewis knew what a big character he was, a larger than life kind of person that would always go above & beyond for anyone that he crossed paths with, nothing was ever too much to ask. Day or night, he was there, truly one of a kind and no other friendship will ever compare to what Lew gave to us all. A great big teddy bear who had thee biggest heart ❤️
Unfortunately, majority of us knew but for those who didn’t, Lewis had his struggles with mental health & wow what a fight he put up!! Lewis battled with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), anxiety and depression for a number of years and always spoke quite freely about this.
With the recent heart breaking news, we have decided to do a fundraiser in memory of Lewis, to try to raise funds for a couple of different issues that we know was very close to his heart. With Lewis’s funeral costs fully covered, any money raised will be distributed by myself & family to a children’s charity that help children who haven’t had the best of start to life. Also we will be donating to a BPD charity to hopefully bring more awareness to this health condition.
We are also hoping that if we can raise enough funds we can get Lewis a memorial tree with a plaque & a bench where we can all go to sit with him from time to time, to feel close to him or just for a bit of head space (we all know his love for trees & being in the outdoors).
We are aware of a few different plans that are happening to raise money and full details of these dates, times, location etc will be posted when we have planned routes. As we know, Lewis struggled day to day but more so at night time therefore we will be doing a midnight 10mile walk (Date/location/time to be agreed). There will also be a big gym event being held where Lewis’s old gym friends and anyone who would love a challenge, it will consist of a 100kg tyre flip all the way up Rivington Pike and back down, then lastly, as Lewis’s weight was 100kg we will also be carrying this on a weighted stretcher up and down Rivington Pike.
Lewis was such a big & loud character therefore these events need to be big and loud like him. Therefore we would like this to be shared as much as possible to raise as much as we can do, get his name out there, raise awareness for mental health and also remind each other it’s absolutely ok to not be ok !
There aren’t enough words to express just how loved you are Lew or how much you will be missed, you have taken such a huge piece of our hearts. 28 years old and far too young to leave this world. We loved you then, we love you still, we always have & we always will ❤️
No donation is too small, anything will be truly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts & we welcome anyone & everyone to join us to help our fundraising.
