Weʼre raising £2,680 to running the 268 miles of the Pennine Way over 10 days to support two charities: CARA (Essex) and Gabriella's Grab for Independence.
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.

In August 2021, as a celebration of my 50th year on this planet (I must be mad) I'm running the 268 mile Pennine Way in 10 days. This is a real challenge as I suffer from M.E. or Chronic Fatigue and will be expecting my mind and body to average roughly a marathon a day for 10 days come rain or shine. Yikes.
Because this is a pretty momentous challenge I'm aiming to raise £2680 for two charities I support. Those are:
1) CARA (Essex) the Centre for Action on Rape and Abuse who have helped my wife a lot with counselling.
2) Gabriella's Grab for Independence supporting the Superstar Gabriella (aka SuperG) who is the daughter of a friend. Gabriella has Cerebral Palsy and needs to get help to give her the best chance of a great life.
I'll be videoing the whole experience including all the training. You can follow all the shenanigans on my YouTube Channel Neil Bailey channel
If I can work out how to do it I will also be live tracking the challenge so you can follow my progress, and maybe even live broadcast at times on my Do Kindness Facebook Group
Every single penny raised will be split 50:50 between the two charities.

You are an absolute legend and an inspiration Mr Bailey. This would be a phenomenal challenge on its own without ME. I am in awe of you.
