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.

Story

Our amazing friend and colleague, Sarah Brigham has a rare form of cancer in her windpipe, which cannot be operated on and will not respond to radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Her best, and pretty much only, option for treatment now is Carbon Ion Therapy. However, the only place Sarah can get this is in Heidelberg and it cannot be funded by the NHS. Therefore, we need to raise £60,000 so she can receive this vital treatment...a large sum of money, but Team Brig-Aid are here to help.

We have created Team Brig-Aid as a way of pulling everyone's fundraising efforts together. Rather than write lots about the main campaign here, please visit the central fundraising page for full details of how to support:

https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/teambrig-aid

As part of this campaign, I pledge to 'Lose 12lbs and swim 1200 lengths in 12 weeks'. Now, I know this kind of challenge is a piece of cake for some people (wait, don't mention cake!), but I have gotten out of shape in recent times (nor am I the fittest person)...and don't have the best will power either, when it comes to overindulging in what's not good for me...I can sniff out a burger from a mile off...so, Sarah, and during my time being involved with Brig-Aid, has inspired me to get healthier (something I have wanted to do for a while). SO, it's time to take the plunge (yep, I realise what I did there!). I hope I exceed the expected weight loss. My friend and colleague, Lauren will (secretly!) keep my weight details (I'm up for a challenge, but not one as big as revealing my current weight via social media!!) and then as we check my weight/loss each week, we will keep a record. So, it's swimming costume out and the chocolate digestives banished to the calorie sin bin. So PLEASE, if you can, donate, no matter how small, to this challenge...and Brig-Aid will be even richer, in donations and in hope .

A healthy body and healthy mind = a happy heart!
Now...where did I put those goggles?!

THANK YOU!
