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 2016 my big brother went through a big battle with cancer and for just over a year he fought and fought there was times he nearly gave up and there was times he nearly died too however with the love and support from his family and friends he continued with the fight we went with him to his chemotherapy treatments his appointments and even sat with him all times of the day and night when he had to be admitted into hospital I looked after him when he was weak and also looked after his son (my nephew) when he was too unwell and had no strength to even get out of bed I missed alot of school at 1 point because I was scared to leave the house incase something happened or he needed something badly or even to call an ambulance but thankfully with perseverance praying and strength to continue we finally got the best news and was told that he won the battle and the cancer is gone and of course we hope it doesn't come back again!! Anyway like all boys I do love my Xbox and football but my other love is my bike and for my 16th my brother got me a brand new bike so I've decided that I'm going to do a sponsored cycle I'm going to cycle 20 miles from Ayrshire to Glasgow on the back roads to raise money for a local cancer who helped us out when we needed them I say that I'm raising £1000 but any amount that I manage to raise will still help so I'm asking you to please help as well weather it's a couple of pound or more it's still great I'm aiming to do the cycle in September maybe October starting at 7am in the morning and it's dark and I'm hoping that I'll be able to cycle the full day with a few stops on the way I hope that you'll help out and I want to say a massive MASSIVE Thank you in advance for your donation lots of love Xx
