£430raised of £1,000 target by 15 supporters

    Weʼve raised £430 to contribute to a trust fund for a friend's children following her passing

    Funded on Sunday, 24th September 2017

    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.


    Unfortunately, my dear friend Kyrah was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, and has been given just months left to live. She will be leaving behind her girlfriend Aurelia, and her two children, Jay (13) and Saoirse (9).

    As with all loving parents she wants to ensure the kids have the best future after she has passed, and I would like to help her with that by raising some money to put into a Child Trust Fund/Junior ISA for when they are 18.

    So to raise funds, I have decided to do a few short runs, namely:

    26th August - St Begas Ultra Trail Race 35 mile (56.3km) ultra marathon

    27th August - Bollington 10k (6.1 miles)

    3rd September - Gritstone Grind 35 mile ultra marathon

    14th October - Skipton Canal 45km (27.9 miles - not a race but I'm going to run it).

    Joining me on the Skipton Canal event is my friend Simon Handley, who has also agreed to raise money for this good cause.

    I would be grateful for any donations given

    **Note** as this is crowdfunding which can only be done for 30 days, I have had to create a new one. I will be adding the original £225 raised to this one once it is released by JustGiving.

    Thank you

      Yesterday was the tough Gritstone Grind Ultra. 35 miles of hills, wind, and rain. Set off a little too fast and not much vegan food at the checkpoints so mainly used them as water stops. Happy to finish it in 7hrs and 24mins :)

      So on Saturday I did the St Begas Ultra. The course ended up being a little over 36 miles, and I managed it in 8hrs 40mins. On Sunday I did the Bollington 10k in 49 mins 37 secs. Next up is Gritstone Grind on Sunday. Another 35 miles of fun :)
