    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Garth Under 5's Nursery is run as a not for profit organisation. As such the Nursery attempts to keep its fees as low as possible to give as many people as possible access to affordable childcare. While this is a noble cause it does mean that the Nursery's budget for new equipment and toys is very limited.

    I rather enjoy Obstacle Course Races, the muddier the better. And whilst I don't mind getting wet, winter races are not the greatest of fun (regardless of the stories the smiles in the photos tell). This year I have signed up to run the 8 Mile "Grim Challenge" on December 3rd, as you can imagine it's going to be chilly. What you might not know is that "The Grim" is set on the Army's Vehicle Test Range at Aldershot and this means puddles; hundreds of deep, meters (and meters) long puddles of freezing cold muddy water. (Awesome right?)

    Now my wife and mother-in-law are very involved with the running of the Nursery and it has been *suggested* that if I am going to go and play in the mud like a big kid, I could at least try to raise some money for the Nursery whilst doing so.

    Which leads us to this page and hopefully your kind donation...

    ...so please be kind, give a little and save my earholes from earache whilst doing so ;)

      Thank you to everyone who's donated it's very appreciated :) It's been a week and I am almost warm again. The smile on my face in the picture is purely of the joy of getting out of the bog. What a cold, cold day; look closely and you can see the ice around the sides of the bog ! BRRRRRRR !!

      I went for a run in The Lookout yesterday and it's already starting to feel chilly. Then I found this photo from a previous Grim Challenge that I have run and I recalled just how bloody cold it is. I've bought some wool socks :o
