£380raised of £350 target by 16 supporters

Weʼre raising £350 to help Carmen run 14k for the first time all the way to the Australian International Girl Guide Jamboree. Sponsor her for City2Surf here.

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.


In the first week of October, Carmen will be joining over 1500 Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from Australia, New Zealand and all over the world for a week long International Girl Guide Jamboree.

Girl Guides Australia is one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia for girls and young women, providing dynamic and flexible leadership and personal skills development programs. The program has four key elements – physical, practical, people and self. This also includes a camping program culminating in a week long International Girl Guide Jamboree held every three years somewhere in Australia for girls 10-17 years.

This year it will be held in Sydney and provides an amazing week of camping, adventure, friendship and, of course, lots of fun.

Wherever you are from and wherever it is being held every girl is asked to pay the same to provide this great confidence building experience for the girls so Carmen is has been busy watering gardens, walking dogs, washing cars and now will be running 14 km in the City2Surf race on Sunday 12th August.

If you would like to help Carmen acheive her funding goal of $625 (£350) and can spare some money, however large or small she would really appreciate it.
