    What is crowdfunding?

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

    Story

    I have been accepted to FLIC, a circus school in Italy. I'm so happy and excited that I could run a half marathon and that's exactly what I'm going to do! On the 25th of September I'm running in the Forest of Dean half marathon. Please support me by donating to this crowd funder.

    As you may know I love circus and I have been training to be a circus performer for over three years. I have worked hard to get where I am today but I still have a long way to go. I have completed a two year foundation degree course in Bristol and now I have just been accepted into a top circus school in Italy where i can complete my 3rd year and get a full degree. Just to be accepted into this school is a rare opportunity and I feel hugely grateful and humbled by it.

    If you know me then you know how much the circus has changed my life and me as a person, I have grown so much in the last four years and I know I am on a path in my life that is very important to me and that I am extremely passionate about. I want to keep on going and further my circus training and education and reach my circus dreams.

    Alongside my circus training I have also been working two jobs and training for the marathon to help raise money for my education. Although I have managed to save a fair bit already, Its going to cost a lot of money to pay the tuition fees and start a new life in a different country and I know i'm not going to do it on my own.

    If you would like to sponsor me to run the marathon then I will be hugely grateful, and I will keep you updated with my progress and training.

    Thank you and much love,

    Hester x
