    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

    A random night in 2014 watching 'The Way'. An inspiring movie with a remarkably talented actor which reminded me that in life, the journey is what matters. I decided it was time to give meaning to the past 7 years. So I thought, why not go for a really long push!

    Unfortunately life got busy and a few health issues diverted my attention until a few months ago, fed up of sitting bored in doctors' waiting rooms, I realised it was time to just achieve something memorable.

    From 13-29 September, I will be pushing over 100km along the Portuguese Route of the Camino de Santiago, through Spain. A popular pilgrimage route in Europe, I am doing this to raise money for two charities: Bakhita House, UK and St.Jude Children Research Hospital, USA.

    Bakhita House is an emergency safe house, located in central London, that provides care for rescued female victims of human trafficking and modern day slavery. Among the services offered are: access to safe accommodation, medical help and counselling services, translation and interpretation in over 20 languages, education and employment training, along with pastoral and spiritual care. For more information visit www.caritaswestminster.org.uk/bakhita-house.php

    St.Jude is a children's research hospital funded largely through private donations. As well as providing free healthcare to cancer patients, St Jude's has spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children, pioneering research that has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% to 80%. For more information visit www.stjude.org

    The money donated will be divided equally among both these charities.

    I will be funding all of my costs personally and through any generous private sponsors I can find.

    I'm sure you will agree that both are deserving causes! Your support in helping me reach my goal will be greatly appreciated!

    After sustaining a spinal cord injury at the age of 21 that left me a tetraplegic, 1 year in hospital and the next 7 years of my 20s living in a nursing home, one film reminded me it's all about living life! This is my first step.
