    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    1 MILLION steps, JOGGED, RUN OR WALKED by Christmas Eve.

    I have always wanted to be able to run, but had been put off by my size and the belief I would fail if I joined a regular running club, even as a beginner.

    After deciding to take the plunge last year, it was a revelation when I found the online running group. www.toofattorun.co.uk

    So in thanks to Julie Creffield the founder I have given myself


    1 MILLION steps, JOGGED, RUN OR WALKED by Christmas Eve.

    This crowdfunding page will help Julie Creffield continue her quest to get overweight women running, in a safe, none judgemental and supportive environment,

    Any donation however small is greatly appreciated.

    I will be tracking my progress on my fitbit and will provide regular updates on progress

    Wish me luck. Kathryn

      I did it! Thank you all so much for your sponsorship and encouragement. I completed my I million steps, covering 729Km, running 27% of the total distance. I did have to continue my steps for a few days beyond Christmas Eve, unfortunately a few personal issues conspired against me. I hope the money raised helps Julie Creffield in her quest to get more overweight women running. My next challenge is the Euro Disney Paris half marathon Sept 2017, in memory of my nephew Nathan Owen, on what will be our 10th year without him. x

      It's almost 6 weeks since I started and despite a week of a heady cold and no running I have looked back today with pride at. What I have achieved. My running has gone from 3-4K to a minimum 7k distance. In fact yesterday I did my very first 10k run. It was an epic milestone. My speed has increased from an average 10min, 30sec kilometres to 9min, 30sec kilometres. I whole minute faster I have completed over 400,000 steps of which I have run 95.81k My progress has been far better than I expected. Thank you for your support xxx
