    Story

    My Story:- Hi for those who don't know me, I am Dave and I am 47 years old. I am competing in the UK Ironman on July 16th 2017.
    I have never swam 2.3 miles. (I swim when i fall in!!) I am a keen cyclist. I have never run anywhere near a Marathon. (I run when there's a big dog loose!!) So that's one out of three disciplines i know i can do.
    I am doing this for Becky, I will complete all three.
    Beckys Story:- Becky is an 11 year old girl who would have been competing for the UK this year in gymnastics. Last year she suffered a spinal bleed and was paralyzed from the chest down.
    Since then through guts, determination and hard work she has regained restricted use from her chest up but remains paralysed from her chest down. She is now home from hospital where she is cared and looked after round the clock by her family. She is such a happy determined little character who refuses to be downbeat.
    I am raising money to help provide much needed support for Becky who doesn't have a charity and has very little funding for what needs to be wholesale changes to the family home and to provide basic equipment to give her the best chance of recovery.
    Becky is a family friend and as such this cause is very close to our hearts, every penny raised will go to Becky so ask you please to donate as much as you can spare.
    Thankyou for reading our page, Dave and Becky.

      Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to visit mine and Becky's page. For those who have been keeping tabs we have hit our original target of £2000 this morning!! Thank you so much everyone who has donated....sooo I've upped the target by a sneaky £500😊 Training is going very well so far, I have been hitting my training targets and I am where I should be in terms of fitness and weekly exercise hours completion which I'm thrilled with. It's now less than 3 weeks to go until my race and I am getting a little nervous if I'm being honest!!

    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 nonprofit.

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

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
