Weʼre raising £4,500 to Help provide me with my dream qualification, a level 3 personal trainer course and also the support required for this.
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.
My name is Dawid, I'm 21 years old and I'm trying to raise money to take part in a personal trainer level 3 course to take my business to the next level and achieve my dream. I am not eligible for a free YMCA or college course, as I am over the age limit, and my disability limits me from taking on paid employment as others may be able to do. Being able to complete this course would give me a greater knowledge of fitness training to support my clients with their fitness goals, and this work would give me the opportunity to have paid clients.
I was born with cerebral palsy, which affects my movement and the coordination of my limbs. however, this does not stop me from participating in sports activities and being a valid member of my community. I have been interested in the gym for quite a few years now, and I'm passionate about sport, and my dream job is personal training.
I am currently volunteering at Bradley Stoke Leisure centre in Bristol, with my Level 2 fitness instructor qualification and would now love to take my training to the next level. I have several regular clients that I train and we learn from one another. I am unable to charge people with just the level 2, so currently I am doing this for free which is great fun, however I would like to take the next step now.
I am fundraising for the cost of the course, and the cost of the hours for my personal assistant to come along to the course with me to assist me, which I require to be able to attend. I hope to book on to a course shortly after raising the funds.
Personal Assistant £3,000 at £10pph for Monday to Friday, 10 hours a day, for five weeks, and flexible hours.
