    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    In 2007 I went to the Philippines, to a small village called San Rafael. We were 3 students in high-school and two teachers on a volunteer project. Our mission was to bring the money we have gathered to build houses, help with education, food and medical care. There I met Jenny. Jenny was 11 and we connected due to her suffering from a similar heart decease that I did when I was younger. We helped her with medical care and I promised her that I would help her with her education and future.

    I have since 2007 paid for Jenny's education. In the beginning it was not much around £50 a year. Now, Jenny is in college. Studying to be a Social Worker. To invest in a young girls education is the most important investment we can make in order to be able to make the world a better place. That's why I have decided to help Jenny with her education. The most amazing gift you can five someone is that of a brighter future and now you can help to.

    When Jenny is a Social Worker her aim is to help young girls in a similar situation as her. To influence their behaviour and teach them the importance of focusing on an education. Jenny will be a force for good in her community and with more and more people like Jenny getting an education poverty can misery will decrease. This is the longterm goal and you can be a part of this.

    So, here's the deal. I have already paid for Jenny's first semester and last year I helped fund almost for another one by running the Amsterdam Marathon, now she has 4 left. Each semester is 56000 php which is about £800 pounds. I am going to raise as much money as I can in every running race I perform until it's enough to cover Jenny's total education. You as a donor will receive receipts of payments and regular updates on Jenny is doing. All you need to do is donate what you want and register you email address. We will then together help Jenny get a better future :)

      Have been quietly rehabilitating for the last week. Today I was at the gym running on the treadmill. Lasted 18 minutes today then I had to stop. It's far away from 4 hours. The knee still hurts. But I'm finishing this marathon in less then 2 weeks. Even if I'm limping for the majority of it. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/forjennysedu

      I have countered a minor setback. Yesterday I was pushing it having one of the best runs this time around. Mile 10 I had to stop because my knee wouldn't have it anymore. It looks like it's IT Band Syndrome which is not good but not terrible. I'm still going to fight to finish this Marathon! With you guys donation that would really eager me on and keep me motivated. Don't forget to give me your email as well for updates directly. Thank you guys - I'll keep you posted ! http://www.runnersworld.com/tag/it-band-syndrome
