    Weʼve raised £1,460 to Kayak from UK to France & Sober October - giving to cancer research

    Funded on Tuesday, 7th November 2017

    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.


    Hi Friends! This October I am going to risk my life (well sort of) to raise money for cancer research. Why? I have lost three out of four of my grandparents to cancer, and this past May, doctors thought I might have stomach cancer, SCARYSTUFF! (Don’t worry - the doctors didn't find anything. I have now been properly diagnosed with a treatable autoimmune disease and, simply, a severe burn-out.)

    I am eager to raise awareness and money to help support an amazing organization trying to find cures for various types of cancer. I'm going to do two things: Kayaking from the UK to France! & SoberOctober (31 days... may decide to take it through the end of 2017!)

    Some scary facts… Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world. US ranks #2, and UK ranks #23 in world in terms of most deaths from cancer. 39.6% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime.

    Details: My aim is to donate a minimum of 2000 GBP to a selected cancer research nonprofit. Due to the way Just Giving is set up, I cannot name the organization here on a crowdfunding page, so only give if you know me and trust me. I am going to deduct 500GBP to put towards the cost of the kayaking trip which is quite expensive, and the rest of the donations will go to a charity, (which is why I cannot set this up as a direct donation page). Ping me directly if you are curious which one, but I have done my due diligence. It's the best globally for cancer prevention.
