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.


My dad has a massive heart for people. Especially those in Romania. In Sept 2017 my dad along with many others travelled to Romania. Sadly, he along with others were involed in an accident. The air helicopter, ambulance and more came to the scene. My dad was air lifted to a hospital which I along with my Mum and brother and sister visited. With the help of the crew my dad survived.

Those of you who know my Dad know he has always been a runner. At this moment he cannot run, so I am doing the running for him. But in turn I would like to raise money for two worthy causes.

1. The Romania air helicopter who saved my Dads life.

2. who lovingly care and support people in Romania, India and Tanzania.

Please can you help me continue my Dads dream of helping people while running as many races as I can.

I will be running so far...
2 x 10k
3 x 13.1 miles
And finishing in April 2019 with a marathon in Brighton.
I plan to do much more and am signing up to races weekly, please keep watching this page for run updates. If my Dad cannot run I will run for him. I certainly plan to get a large amount of miles under my belt.

Thanks so much
