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.


I'm running a marathon - 26.2 miles. It's in York on 14th October 2018.

I haven't been successful in the London marathon ballot AGAIN! So I signed up for York - "The Yorkshire Marathon" later this year.

I wanted a challenge and to run for something I really felt passionately about. I needed the motivation. I'd only ever run 10km on the gym treadmill before.

I wouldn't have even considered this huge distance and training without something I felt truly passionate about raising for. I've wanted wanted to run for a particular reason from the start -
for my best friend. This friend has been through an extremely difficult time which unfortunately ended in tragic loss. Apologies, but there'll be no further detail.

Please may I ask that you just consider donating to this page. I'd be absolutely thrilled with just a fiver from everyone I know. The price of that next beer or coffee. It would all stack up and be of tremendous benefit.

I've been training really hard for the last 8 months and will continue for the next 2 months ....and then I'll attempt the distance.

Please just punch some buttons on your phone. Chuck me a fiver if you can.

Thank you

Gareth / Gary
