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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Back in September 2018 myself, my brother Jason and his girlfriend Elle signed up to run the Edinburgh Half Marathon 2019 on the 26th May 2019.

We signed up not only to test ourselves physically but to fundraise to support the Intensive Care Unit at St John's Hospital, Livingston. If it hadn't been for St John's ICU department our Mum would no longer be with us today.

In August 2017, what began as a chest infection resulted in our Mum being put into an induced coma and given a 1 in 5 chance of survival. After 5 long days, our prayers were answered and against all the odds, Mum started to improve. Not only did the ICU save Mum but they supported us through some of the worst days we've ever had to go through.

With their around the clock care and support, we need to continue to help support such a vital cause. Whilst we can never thank the ICU department and the hospital enough we want to give something back in anyway we can. You never truly appreciate what the amazing staff at St John's and hospitals all over the country do until you're in the unfortunate position. Fortunately, we were some of the lucky ones.

We ask for your help, any donation that you can provide to help us in giving back would be so greatly appreciated. Please help us support the facilities and staff that continue to save lives everyday.

All our thanks in advance,

Claire, Jason & Elle
