    Weʼve raised £2,202 to Help Liam's family & fund a hydro pool for Liam's treatment

    Funded on Friday, 10th November 2017

    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.


    I'll be running the Causeway Coast Marathon on 23rd September to help raise money for my friend's son Liam McCallum. Liam was hit by a car in January when playing football outside his home in Liscolman, Co. Antrim.
    The accident happened just a week before Liam's 10th birthday and he has been receiving treatment ever since at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. The devastating accident has left Liam facing a long and difficult recovery & his family are trying to cope with this as well as the 120 mile round trip to the hospital.
    The money I raise will go towards the cost of a hydro pool so some of Liam's treatment can be done at home.
    Any donation you can offer will make a huge difference to Liam and to helping his family deal with the terrible situation.

    About the event
    The Causeway Coast Marathon is a full marathon (26.2 miles) run off road along the cliffs and coastline of North Antrim. Plenty of hills, hundreds of steps, beaches & cliffs - it will be a very tough challenge. This should give you the idea...

    This is not my first marathon, as many of you know, but it's my first for 4 years and my first ever off road. Life has also ground training to a major halt for the last few years, but I really want to raise money for this cause and so it has called for a proper challenge.
