Weʼre raising £500 to Support Ed Hill's recovery by walking 100km in one go!
- Morden, UK
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.
This summer Hawar and I, along with the Exchange Lab team, are going to take on the huge physical challenge of walking 100KM from Bath to Cheltenham. We'll be doing this in a single day, with no sleep, few breaks and is expected take around 30 hours. This'll be toughest challenge we've ever faced and we'll need to be sure we're ready for it with some proper training!
We're doing this for Ed Hill, Charlie's colleague and friend, who suffered a life changing accident last year during a game of 5-a-side football. He has spent the best part of a year in hospital recovering, thankfully he is making his way back home but this is by no means the end of his journey. Life back home will be a big adjustment as he is now wheelchair bound, and we are fundraising to try to do what we can to make this new way of life easier for him.
All money raised will be going directly to Ed. Money raised by the Exchange Lab team has already helped him to pay for ramps so that he can get around his family home and will be going towards electrical attachments for his wheelchair so that he can get around more easily. We've got a big target for fundraising, but we know that this money is going to a great cause and really will make a difference.
Anything you can donate will be massively appreciated and will make such a difference!

Training is going well! Hawar and I completed 40KM in one day with Charlotte Still and Thomas Longvill! We walked over and around Box Hill and back home again on a huge 8 hour, 50,000+ step hike!
