£375raised of £1,000 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £375 to support my expedition to China with an organisation called World Challenge in the summer of 2018.

    Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom
    Funded on Saturday, 15th September 2018

    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.


    In the summer of 2018 I will be travelling to China with the organisation World Challenge and a group of students from school, we will stay for 4 weeks. An integral part of the "challenge" is to raise the money ourselves, so I will be doing sponsored events at various points this year. The main focus of the trip will be a volunteer project that we will undertake with the Chengdu Urban Rivers Association during the final week. CURA is a non-profit non-governmental organization founded in 2003. Members of CURA consist of former experts and researchers with the Chengdu Fu-nan River Restoration Project, started in 1992; as well as local and international students, citizens and professionals as volunteers. CURA’s main project is based in Anlong Village, Pixian, around 40 km to the northwest from the heart of Chengdu city. This project has been running since 2005, and promotes ecological infrastructure (such as the use of biodigesters, constructed wetlands and composting toilets), chemical-free farming, community-supported agriculture (CSA), urban farming and nature education.

    To give you an idea of what we will be doing I have described the basic itinerary for the rest of the trip. During the first week of the expedition our group will visit the cultural sites of China, including: the Great Wall,  the  forbidden  city  and the terracotta warriors. The second  and  third  weeks  will  mainly  be  taken  up  by  intense  treks  across  two  beautiful  landscapes.  We will start with a  3-day acclimatisation trek around Emeishan, then, after a long train ride and a couple of days to rest we will start our main trek  around Minya  Gongga  which  will  last  for  5  days.  Before returning  home  we  will  also  visit  the  giant  pandas  and  explore  the  markets.

      I finished in 2:00:50, a lot quicker than expected. I averaged 9 minute miles for most of it and practically sprinted the last 500m in an attempt to get under 2h. Unfortunately I didn't make it, but that doesn't matter. After barely being able to walk up and down the stairs yesterday I think my body will feel normal tomorrow. I'm definitely not thinking about doing a marathon anytime soon, how people can run that twice is beyond me. Still, it's on the bucket list. Thank you for all the sponsorship! Here's the final post-run selfie 😊🏃‍♀️

      I've been so unmotivated lately, mainly because I've been stressed. Anyway, when I finally went on a run on Friday I was aiming to go 18/19k. Unfortunately at 12.59k I twisted my ankle and had to call mum for a lift home. Don't worry, I've done this plenty of times before when playing netball, so it's more inconvenient and annoying than anything more major. I've now rested it for 3 days so I'm going on a short run tomorrow to make sure it's okay. No post-run selfie below 😲

      Your dad tells me you've been training for the Great Birmingham Run, despite having a cold. That shows dedication and is something clearly worth sponsoring. Good luck!
