£975raised of £2,000 target by 28 supporters

    Weʼve raised £975 to help raise more money for the Neuro Intensive Care Unit at Leeds General Infirmary (page#2!)

    Dorney, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 1st December 2017

    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 charity.

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


    Firstly, welcome to Page#2 of my “Trio of Triathlons” to help raise money for Leeds Neuro ICU. I am 2 tris down and have raised an astonishing £6,315 so far! Sadly Page#1 ( has exceeded the 120 day fundraising limit, so the link has expired  But Just Giving are happy for me to continue fundraising on a new page. So here it is... and thank you in advance to any newcomers. My story can be found in the Page#1 link above.

    Secondly, Keith (aka Daddy Hest) is sweating for this challenge now too. His running shoes may be hung up for the time being but he has agreed to match any fundraising I achieve. Doubling my current total means we will have raised £12,630! Please do give as little or as much as you can – I am hoping we can do even better over the last few weeks and with your help we can make more of a difference to the ward.

    Thirdly, I know Nick would give the biggest “cheers man” and awkward hug he could to every individual who has donated. Since his cranioplasty at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford on 1 August, I am pleased to say that this is now possible and we have our fingers crossed he continues to improve. Personally, I can’t express how much I have appreciated all your kindness, generosity and support along my training journey, whether you are friends, family or strangers in similar circumstances. Thank you. It’s been a busy 2017!

    Finally, my Olympic Triathlon on Sunday 17 September at Dorney Lake is just around the corner. The fun and games kick-off at 10.00 and I would be grateful for any support to get me across that final finish line – I have a 1500m swim, 42.4km cycle and 10k run to get through and I’m aiming for a PB of sub 3:14:00!

    Hopefully see some of you soon.

    Love, Ems x

        Goodness me, Emily - what an impressive feat and for such a wonderful cause. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to thank Leeds General in this way. You're a star - and a particularly lovely one

      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!
