    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    I am cycling 500k across two countries from Vietnam to Cambodia on 12th November 2016. The trip is self funded and all monies raised will go towards my cause. See more about the trip here: http://www.globaladventurechallenges.com/international/cycle-vietnam-to-cambodia/#cycle

    I have been training for the last six months and this will be a great challenge for me dealing with the intense amount of cycling each day for 9 days. I will be completing a minimum of 40 miles a day in a hot and humid environment.

    I am completing this self funded challenge to raise money for 12yr old Lucas. Lucas was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, in October 2009. This is a disabling, progressive and life limiting disease for which there is no known cure, yet.

    I aim to increase awareness of Lucas' condition, and raise money in an effort to provide him with the best quality of life that he can have.

    All funds will be donated to Lucas in order for his parents to purchase a new wheelchair in order for Lucas to continue competing in power wheelchair football run by the WFA see more information here: http://www.thewfa.org.uk/

    The wheelchair costs £10,000 which has been part funded however, a large amount is still required to be paid. Providing Lucas with this chair will allow him to have the opportunity to train with the England national squad and improve his quality of life.

    Any donations are greatly appreciated by myself and Lucas family.

      So I'm now back home after cycling 400k from Vietnam to Cambodia had the most amazing time although the heat and humidity was a definite challenge! Had lots of mishaps and dramas along the way including people fainting, getting heat exhaustion, lost, falling of bridges and stairs! Two people went home on day 3 and two ended up in hospital. About 80% had some kind of sickness bug which I luckily escaped. My calves don't feel like they belong to me anymore and I've forgotten how to walk 😂. Thanks to everyone who has donated to my cause.
