    Weʼve raised £325 to Josh Helping Rowan Run

    Funded on Monday, 2nd October 2017

    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.


    Rowan is a chatty, charming, typical 6-year-old boy - he loves Star Wars, baseball, superheroes and playing computer games with his twin sister and big brother.

    Rowan was born 11 weeks early, and as a result he developed Cerebral Palsy. He was diagnosed aged 18 months, and since then he has struggled to meet his physical milestones. After a lot of physiotherapy, Rowan now uses a Kaye walker (named Betsy!) and a wheelchair to get around. However, he tires very quickly and struggles to keep up with his twin and their friends on the playground. His legs hurt and are very stiff, despite how hard he works at his physiotherapy exercises.

    The life-changing SDR surgery is not NHS funded, but will reduce the stiffness in Rowan's legs and allow him much improved mobility, with the aim for him to take his first ever independent steps, and one day... run!

    In order to raise funds for Rowan, my son Josh will be doing his first cycle sportive on Sunday 10th September. Josh is 11 and really loves cycling. He will be cycling 40 miles round Cheshire finishing with a lap round the Oulton Park racing circuit. Josh has not riden this distance before so it will be a real challenge for him.

    Please sponsor Josh in his aim to Help Rowan Run!

      I completed the bike ride today and it was tough, especially on the hills. One of the the hills was a 7% incline. Luckily most of the hills were in the first 15 miles. Thank you for all of your support and it's going to help Rowan a lot.
