raised of £5,000 target by 105 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,030 to buy a new Joëlette to further inclusion through participation.

    Funded on Monday, 30th April 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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In 2016 JAPES launched at the Great Scottish Run to allow differently-abled individuals to experience participation in organised running events. JAPES has made a difference to the lives of more than a dozen Pilots of all ages, and their families & carers, by sharing the experience of organised running events with around a hundred runners and crew to date.

    In 2018, JAPES plans to raise enough money to take possession of a brand new Joëlette Twin. Our current one-wheeled model has been our vehicle for participation in a number of races from 5K through to the Marathon 26.2 miles. We have been to the top of Ben Lomond and are already planning more runs and treks.

    The two-wheeled Joëlette Twin model will be a more comfortable experience for our Pilots, since it offers greater stability and will remove the need for a manual lift: stability and dignity.

    Please help us by contributing whatever you can - every little helps.

      Thank you all - and a great bigBigBIG THANK YOU to Finola Ashe in her parkrun challenge. Our Joëlette TWIN is in the bag. Now we can really SMASH THIS TARGET and add the comforts, options and accessories we need: * Secure four-point harness. * Heated seat and back pads - essential in our climate. * Carrycase. * Emergency repair kit. * Backrest extension kit. * Armrests extension kit. * Side panniers. (These allow easy access to emergency medicine.)

      Dear supporters. We've raised our target to cover 5% Crowdfunding fees and tax on our purchase. Our Joëlette Twin will be ready mid-April and it looks like it will be 'christened' at the Women's 10K in Glasgow. Thank you all. And a special thank you to Finola Ashe who is taking on an amazingly brave challenge to push us over the finish line. Watch this space...

      Cash that was handed to me over the last couple of weeks and some money from me because Brian deserves a medal for putting up with my psychological wobbles and getting me round it safely! Thanks Brian
