- St Davids, United Kingdom
- Funded on Friday, 23rd December 2016
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.
This challenge has been a dream for a long time and something I now feel strong enough to undertake. The task in hand will be as demanding on the mind as it will be brutal on the body and I would argue that it is one of the toughest foot races/challenges in the world!!
Why I am I doing this? Well I love the Pembs Coast Path and a Challenge and adding the time constraints make this the ultimate challenge in one of the best corners of the world
At first I was going to attempt this privately, but having discussed it with a few friends, who were keen to be involved, it then grew to why not try and raise awareness and some funds for charity in the process.
The two charities chosen both assist in fighting the cause for an illness that casts a dark shadow over modern life and in many circles is still a taboo subjects
The DPJ Foundation a newly formed Pembs Charity, which is now spreading across Wales. Their vision is to help men in the rural communities in dealing with Depression and Anxiety related Mental Health. The Founder and trustees have a real vision about providing meaningful services and support to those who need it.
Safe Horizon UK are an independent charity giving support to members of the Blue light public services suffering with psychological injuries such as PTSD and depression.
It's an Unfortunate situation that we face today whereby a number of factors from working conditions, pressures and exposure within these environments can lead to a number of difficulties, which in turn can lead to conditions that destroy peoples wellbeing, mental health and life as they know it.
What makes matters worse is that the statutory support services in place to help are insufficient, under funded and in many case inappropriate.
What these to charities are doing is vital in helping those who feel they have nowhere else to turn.
I am running this event 16th - 18th July if you are interested in being involved get in touch
