    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

    Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK*. I learned this shocking statistic after my good friend Jonathan unexpectedly took his own life last year. In his memory Jonathan's family have set up a charitable foundation, Jonathan's Voice, to work with organisations to promote mental well being in the workplace. Details can be found at http://jonathansvoice.org.uk.

    On 4 March 2018 I will be running the Bath half marathon, and I'm hoping to raise some money through sponsorship to support the work of Jonathan's Voice. Any donations would be most welcome.

      Oh, and I've signed up for the Two Tunnels half marathon in Bath in May, so I will be doing a half in Bath.

      Race day is here! Unfortunately however the Beast from the East reached Bath first, forcing the organisers to cancel the race (http://bathhalf.co.uk/2018/02/cold-weather-alert/). But I promised to run a half marathon, so this morning I went out in the slush and ice and completed an unofficial Nailsea half in 1 hour 42 minutes 14 seconds. No medal or t-shirt, but a lot of satisfaction and gratitude at having raised so much money for a good cause. Thank you all for your generosity and support.
