    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

    My name is Michaela. I have Cerebral Palsy and am wheelchair dependent. I can walk short distances in my walker.
    On 15th OCTOBER 2016 at 12 noon, I am going to attempt to walk around the whole of the sailing lake at Rickmansworth Aquadrome to raise money for ‘Chasing Charlie’s Cure’.
    Charlie is the youngest son of some very good friends of mine. In fact Charlie’s Dad, Mark, and his Auntie Emma both used to help me when I was little.
    Charlie is very poorly with a very aggressive cancer called neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed in March this year when he was only 9 months old and is having lots of treatment including chemotherapy, surgery and stem cell transplant.
    Money is being raised because at the end of the treatment there is a 50% risk of the cancer returning, and if it does Charlie will need to go to America as this is the only place he can be helped, and it is very expensive. If he doesn’t need to go to America, all money raised will go to Neuroblastoma Research.

    I would be very grateful if you could sponsor me.

      I did it!! The sun shone and I walked for over 2 hours without stopping. I was absolutely exhausted but it was worth it! Thank you to everyone who came to the aquadrome and walked with me- you really helped keep me going.😍👍💪

      Thank you everyone for getting me to my target. I've been practising some of the walk and am looking forward to the challenge on Saturday! Charlie is having a tough time with his treatment but still keeps smiling so I want to raise as much money as I can for him.
