    What is crowdfunding?

    Hi my name is Jodie, I am a personal trainer and run my own fitness business. I have recently set myself a challenge of running my first ever marathon. To this end I have entered the loch Ness marathon which is taking place 24th Sep. Although this is already a tough challenge and a particularly testing course, giving my good fitness level, I am hoping to complete the marathon in around the 3 hour mark (No pressure 🙄)

    Through my work I have devoped strong relationships with all my clients and have made many friends, one of which is Bianca who has a 4 year old daughter called Lucia who was diagnosed with Chromosome 1p36 deletion when she was 5 months old. 1p36 deletion syndrome is a disorder that typically causes sever intellectual disability. Most affected individuals have very limited speech ability, hearing and vision impairment, seizure disorder, growth/feeding problems, low muscle tone, cardiomyopathy and behaviour problems.

    After meeting Lucia and seeing the everyday difficulties she is faced with I felt like I needed to do something to help in some way. I have decided that while taking part in this marathon, I would like to take the opportunity to help raise money for Lucia to help cover some of the costs for private therapy.
    Lucia is making great progress with her walking with this therapy but the treatment is very costly. So please make a donation and help me raise money for this very worthy cause. Completing the marathon will be an amazing achievement, but raising money to help Lucia work on taking her first independent steps and hopefully much more will make the day even more rewarding x
