    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 nonprofit.

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


    In July, the England Universities Rugby League team travel to Australia to take part in the 2017 Rugby League World Cup and need to raise £100,000 from sponsorship and player contributions to enable this to happen.  A Future In Sport hasbeen working with the squad's Management Team to devise a mass participation and sponsorship programme to help raise funds for the squad and for community rugby league.

    The concept is simple - the distance from Chesterfield (where A Future In Sport we have our office) to Sydney is 10,573 miles and we want your help in ticking off the miles to help us achieve our total.

    You can swim, run, job, cycle your way to help up build up to our total, ticking off the miles until we hit the magic figure of 10,357.  Everyone taking part in the project will be given sponsorship forms to raise money along the way that will allow us to donate money to the England Universities Rugby League squad as well as work with our partners organisations to provide defibrillators, equipment or training to give back to the community.

    We will also be working with registered partners to set up a single mass participation event to bring the club and surrounding community together. These can be businesses, community organisations or other sports clubs.

    This page will be updated with details of clubs and businesses who have registered to work with us.
