    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.

    Story

    Marteen's nephew Carter is 4 years old and was born with Cerebral Palsy (spastic diplegia).Cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition that affects movement and coordination, caused by a problem with the brain.

    Carter is an extremely happy, chatty, polite and active four year old who would love to be running around with his friends and playing football... Unfortunately, Carter is restricted and cannot balance without his walking frame...He is unable to stand or walk without his walking frame and is often in a lot of pain due to the spasticity (stiffness) in his muscles, which causes him to be extremely sad and has him often asking 'Why can I not walk, run and jump like my friends'... :(

    The Great Ormond Street Hospital has said that Carter is eligible for SDR surgery which with intense Physio Therapy will enable him to stand and walk around unaided and be less reliant on his walker. Without it, he will be looking at a life bound to a wheelchair from roughly the age of 10 as his legs will become tighter and stiffer as he grows.

    To do my bit for Carter I am challenging myself to complete the 10-mile Tough Mudder course on Saturday 28th April 2018 and would greatly appreciate it if you could sponsor me to help keep Carter smiling and raise money for his New Legs!

      My name is Marteen and I am Carter's aunty! This campaign is especially close to my heart as I just want to keep my nephew smiling as he grows older and help give him the chance to run around with his friends and family.
