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.

I don't think anyone could read or hear about Lisa Wells and her family's tragic turn of events last year without being deeply saddened or moved to do something to help.
At the end of 2017 I made the crazy decision to enter The Watson Gym Christmas Power Lifting competition. Just so you understand the scale of ridiculous this decision is on, I now weigh 56kg, have been underweight for years and even the thought of stepping inside a gym filled me with dread before June 2017. The goal is to dead lift 110kg and Bench Press 50kg. Let's just say I have a LONG way to go and a year of hard work and dedication ahead of me. Daily training, tracking all my food intake and basically becoming the real life She Ra!
There have been plenty of times between declaring my goal in December 2017 and now that I could have easily backed out and with 10 months to go, many more opportunities ahead too.
Having heard about Lisa and everything she is facing and doing to ensure her girls have all the support they will ever need as they grow up I genuinely can not think of ANYTHING more challenging that what she is going through now and will do for the rest of her life.
My respect for this lady has no boundary and if she face everything she is and still achieve all she has set out to do and a whole lot more, then I'm going to put my big girl pants on, man up and get this done while making it a worthwhile journey to go on.
So, every weight I lift, every session I train, every obstacle I hit, every gram of protein I have to weigh and track will be for Lisa and her family and 1000% worth it.
I will NOT be beaten, I WILL step up to that Platform in December 2018 and lift a respectable weight and every pound I lift and every pound I raise will be for Ava-Lilly, Saffia and Dorothy House.
Please use this Crowdfunding page to support me and Lisa's mission. Even £1 is £1 towards one of the most heartfelt and worthwhile causes I have ever been proud to support. Thankyou.
Challenge is ON! :)
