Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Hi people, hope you are all well, not great timing being Christmas and all that, but after conversation with people their comments and encouragement. I have decided to embark on a fundraising mission to raise the funds for me to be able to purchase a elite hand cycle. a very expensive piece of equipment that I could never afford to purchase independently.
my reason for wanting this piece of equipment is that it will create opportunities for me, by this I mean it will enable me to enter and compete in triathlons. not only does this have a detrimental effect on my mental well-being, it allows me to get out and meet new people.
however it also has positive rewards for others as I would use it to fundraise for other charities. I have tried on numerous occasions to try and find a sponsor/s to provide me with funding that enables me to purchase equipment and to attend events and compete. again on a positive side I would be willing to promote the company/ies who were willing to help by promoting/advertising their firm. so if this appeals to you maybe we could hold talks to negotiate.
I am going to stoke Mandeville this Saturday 12/11/16 to try out for shooting, swimming, archery. this is a basic assessment to see if I can make it to Tokyo for the 2020 para games.
I have 3 main stage events booked in for next year they are Silverstone half marathon in March 2017, Brighton full marathon, and then London, I would like to attend lots of other events but am bound financially. so again if your looking to promote your company/business then I am happy to do so.
I was injured in 2008 RTA came off a motorbike and damaged my spine leaving me with life changing injuries, I am confined to a wheelchair and will be for the rest of my days, however I chose not to give up and continue to march on, I am touched by the well wishers and followers I have in my life and I will continue to wow the people of their hearts and minds.
a big thank you to all those who help
