Weʼre raising £1,000 to the rehabilitation of the pediatric hospital in my home town of Arad, Romania

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.
2018 brings a new, very exciting (and slightly terrifying) running challenge: I’m looking to complete one half marathon each month of the year along with the Berlin marathon in September.
I have only got a few years of running under my belt and completing my first marathon in Berlin last year was an important milestone. If you’ve heard me talk about running at all, you’ll know how much of a fair-weather runner I am, so keeping up the training for that long won’t be an easy feat ;)
All money raised will go to support the rehabilitation of the paediatric infectious disease hospital in my home town of Arad, Romania. The project #cudragpentruviitor (in English: “with love for the future”) has been kickstarted by wonderful people who are stepping in where the state has all but failed... My hope is to raise a minimum of £1,000 - with a total of 275km to race, that means raising just short of £4 per km!!
December 2017 saw the launch of the first floor of the hospital which has already been renovated. Your donations will help support the rehabilitation of the second floor to bring it up to the standards of care we take for granted in a society like the UK.
Follow "Cetatea Voluntarilor Arad" on Facebook to check photos of what the project has achieved already, or have a look below.
Beyond being a personal achievement, it’s important for me to be able to support the work of wonderful people bringing about positive change in my home town and it would ace to have your support!
The running schedule for the remaining of the year so far looks like this:
13 Jan: Victoria Park Half - DONE 25 Feb: Headcorn Half (Kent) - DONE 16 Mar: Marseille Half - DONE 8 Apr: Bratislava Half - DONE 6 May: Salzburg Half - DONE 10 June: St Albans half - DONE 22 July: Windsor half - DONE 11 Aug: Thames Meander half 16 Sep: Berlin Marathon 7 Oct: Kingston half 25 Nov: Richmond half
