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.
Myself and Collegue Claire Share and a group of friends will be doing Tough Mudder to raise funds to help raise funds for a Powerchair for Emma.
Emma was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Emma is a full time wheelchair user but still loves her sport! Emma rides with the Ebor Vale RDA, wheelchair races at Leeds City athletics club and plays powerchair football for Hull and East Riding Electric Eels. As Emma has got older and bigger her spine has curved dramatically leading to severe scoliosis. She was due to have an operation to try and straighten her spine but this has been postponed due to the danger of making Emma's condition worse. Emma would love her own chair for powerchair football as she is currently borrowing one from the club but long term would like one that is more supportive for her back and spine.
