    In 2009 I suffered a brain spasm, suspected bleed on the brain. The cause was stress related. Also some of my very close family members have passed away or suffered with severe mental health issues. Since 2012 I have run marathons, bike rides and competed in ironman events to raise money to help support mental health and well-being. My latest challenge is Ironman 70.30 Cascais, in Portugal. The conditions that I have to endure in order to compete in these extreme challenges is really nothing, compared to what sufferers, carers and their loved ones have to go through every single day.

    In life there is such a fine dividing line between success and failure or being ok and not being ok. Our brain is like the hard drive on a computer but when something goes wrong, it is not always possible to just reinstall the software.

    The Graham Shapiro Foundation – Support. Mentor. Inspire.

    Mental Health and Well-being for the young and old.

    The Graham Shapiro Foundation will continue to raise money and support mental health and well-being for: The Mase Group, MIND, Heads Together, The Mental Health Foundation, Cheshire Connect and Help for Heroes.

    Design and Innovation Enterprise.

    Innovation competitions to reward innovative entrepreneurs who have identified a commercial opportunity based on their research and have the drive and vision to transform innovation into enterprise.

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
