    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

    If you don’t know me I am Oliver Tones and I’ve never particularly considered myself a runner, more an enthusiastic jogger. I’ve always been more interested in beer, pubs and, at a stretch, competitive drinking in pubs.

    Following a friend of mine telling me that the Great North Run (9th September) is the best Half Marathon in the world, not just because there’s a Geordie fella who hands out cans of Fosters a mile before the finishing line, I decided I would enter the ballot to get a place. I did this comfortable in the knowledge that there would be no way I would get a place the first year I tried. Imagine my surprise when I found out that I had!

    However, I am now the owner, registered keeper, ahem, Father, of three wonderful boys, Arthur, Edward and William and I want to set an example to them about what we can do to help others, as well as being fit and healthy for them over the coming years as they grind me down, wear me out, ahem, love me unconditionally.
    Here they are:

    Cute, huh?
    Anyway, I’ve run a few 5 and 10Ks before for National and Regional Charities but this time I wanted to make a tangible difference to someone’s life.
    When I heard that my friend and colleague Chris’ daughter was raising funds for life-changing spinal surgery, it was clear that here was an opportunity to make a difference. Her story is here:

    Having kids myself I know that I would go to any lengths to help them in any way I can.

    In order to understand how supportive my friends, family and colleagues have been towards me in running further than I have ever run before, I’d be grateful if you could please donate to this good cause here, on my page.
