£1,310raised of £600 target by 61 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,310 to raise funds for 3 charities very close to my heart: If U Care Share Foundation, MS Society and Cancer Research UK

    Newcastle upon Tyne, UK
    Funded on Monday, 20th August 2018

    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.


    I hate exercise, especially running! I'm 54 and I've never run in my life. I am more unfit than the unfittest person on Planet Unfit!

    But on 18th July, I will be running my 1st (and probably only!) 5k run in the historic city of Durham. I am doing this in memory of my late husband Ian, who died by suicide in October 2014, to raise money for 3 charities.

    The If U Care Share Foundation is the official charity partner for the Durham City Fun Run but I want to raise more money for them. They are a County Durham based organisation providing support to those of us bereaved by suicide as well as working with people and organisations across the UK to promote positive mental health and encouraging us all to talk more openly.

    The other 2 charities are Cancer Research UK and the Multiple Sclerosis Society. I have lost and have family and friends affected by these 2 horrible conditions.

    My aim is to raise £100 for each of the 3 charities, £300 in total.

    I would appreciate anything you can give - I deserve a couple of quid just for getting my sports bra on (who on earth designed such a contraption!). And next time I raise money for charity, I'll remind myself to do something I enjoy e.g. hugging baby elephants!

    Thank you

    Hilary xx

    My husband Ian, died by suicide in 2014. Since then I have been determined to reduce the stigma associated with poor mental health and suicide (including for those of us left behind).
