£631raised of £500 target by 37 supporters

    Weʼve raised £631 to fund two incredible charities by running the New York Marathon!

    New York, NY, United States
    Funded on Saturday, 26th November 2016

    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.


    On the 6th November I will be forcing one leg in front of the other for 26.2 miles with the aim of completing the New York Marathon.

    I'm doing this to support two fantastic charities - one international and one local - to raise money for their incredible efforts to alleviate homelessness and help people lift themselves out of poverty.

    Almost half the world lives on less than £1.50 a day.

    These hardworking people are motivated by the same things as most of us: They want to make something of their lives, feed their families and send their children to school. In fundraising for the microfinance charity Deki, you will give people the capital to start a business and turn their lives around. http://www.deki.org.uk/why/

    Closer to home, as the trustee of a wonderful, local charity, I see first hand how PATH relieve poverty and reduce homelessness. The work of PATH with people on low incomes, refugees, ex-Services personnel, ex-offenders, and others who find themselves needing help, genuinely makes a difference and i'm thrilled to be supporting their incredible efforts.

    So whether its at home or abroad, your money will go exactly where it's needed. It will also continue to give me the motivation I need to continue to train 4 times a week, in all weathers and drag my aching-self the 26.2miles on the day.

    Thanks so much for digging deep I really, really appreciate the support
