Weʼre raising £350 to to go towards the Brig-Aid campaign to raise funds for Sarah's cancer treatment
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.
Last year I landed my dream job at a wonderful venue, headed up by the inspirational Sarah Brigham. Sarah has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her windpipe, which cannot be operated on and will not respond to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
The best option for treatment now is Carbon Ion Therapy, which will hopefully stop the cancer from growing or spreading and may offer the best long term prognosis. However, this treatment cannot be funded by the NHS and the best place Sarah can get this treatment is in Heidelberg.
We need to raise £60,000 so she can receive this treatment.
Team Brig-Aid have got together to pull everyone's fundraising efforts together and you can read more about the central fundraising campaign here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/teambrig-aid
To support the campaign I have entered to run the Lichfield 10k in September.
A 10k race may not seem like much, but for me it will feel like a marathon! There will be far too much whinging about the running (I really, really don't run) but I want to do all I can to support the Brig-Aid campaign.
Anything you can give will truly make the hugest of differences. Thank you.

Congrats. I know how you feel about running - if I run 100metres for a bus then I literally can't breathe, so your efforts seem all the more impressive!

Could bare to see it hanging there just below 200. So I thought I'd give it a wee lift.
