Weʼre raising £150 to raise funds for Flixton Swim Team! I will be taking part in my 1st ever Triathlon (26th August) plus running the Salford 10K(9th September)
- Flixton, Manchester
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.
As those of you who know me will be aware, swimming is my comfort zone. Participating in the sport since I was very young and being part of Flixton swim team for the past 7/8 years, swimming has become a very big part of my life. However, running is not my comfort zone! I have been doing bits of running now and then, and a few park runs over the past year to keep fit for swimming but nothing ever over 5K... until now!
I have set myself 2 challenges to help to raise money for the swim team to allow us to keep the pool hire costs down for the time we need to train and to enable us to travel to Spain in October for an intensive week of swimming to prepare us for County and Regional championships. The 2 challenges are
1)Salford 10k Run
2)My first ever triathlon 750m open water swim, 21km cycle and 5k run
Any donation would be much appriciated and will hopefully help make these 2 challenges slightly more bearable😋
