    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    James and Mara are participating in a Monster sprint triathlon on Sunday, June 26, 2016 to raise awareness of mental illness, and to raise funds for a local branch of a mental health charity. This is in recognition of the important and amazing people some in our lives now and others sadly no longer with us, who have struggled and continue to struggle with mental illness.

    The event is a 450m swim (in a trout lake with the fishies!) a 21km bike ride and then a 4km run. (gulp!)

    "We believe that mental health is everyone’s business and that we are all dependent on each other to a greater or lesser degree for our mental wellbeing. We believe that recovery is a journey, and is different for each person. While there is no single definition of recovery, the achievement of the best possible quality of life for each individual lies at the heart of this journey." (quote from Richmond Fellowship website http://www.richmondfellowship.org.uk/)

      Wow! We've hit our target! Only 3 m ore days to go until the big day. I have pressure sores on my bottom from cycling practice. I'm a bit worried how I will manage on sunday with a sore bum! Standing up a lot at the moment. Hopefully it will be OK by then. :) Thanks to everyone who has sponsored us so far :)

      Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I managed to cycle 10 miles this morning, so still not up to the 21k mark yet. I will keep up with the practice an hopefully I will make it round the course on the day :)
