£275raised of £1,000 target by 19 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,000 to go towards an operation for a little girl, that isn't available for her on the NHS

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.


I made the decision to attempt to run a half marathon in Sept ( the Robin Hood Half Marathon to be precise) when I heard about my friends little girls option to have a specific operation that isn't available for her on the NHS. this was my inspiration to stop dithering about it and do it. So Peyton and Kimberley this is for you. I may not be able to raise £21,000 but if I can gather just a portion of it, it's a step closer.

Peyton's story by her mum Kimberley. Peyton was born at 31+5 weeks gestation weighing just 3lb 12oz. Her NICU journey went as well as it could have really and after 20 very long days, she was allowed home. February 2nd 2017 Peyton was diagnosed with mild diplegic cerebral palsy and in March had an MRI scan to confirm this. The type of cerebral palsy Peyton has, means she will benefit from Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) surgery. The surgery can be hugely beneficial and improve her quality of life. However the surgery is not available for her on the NHS and costs around £21,000 to have.

    8 weeks tomorrow and it will all be over. Nerves are kicking in and training is underway. Tomorrow, with the help of a friend, I will be attempting my first long run. Furthest I've managed without stopping is 11.5ish kms (and only because I got lost 🙈 twice!) It won't be about speed but about completing the distance of between 13 and 15km without stopping (hopefully) Watch this space 😁

    There has been a development with the NHS and SDR surgery and there is a chance that Peyton may be eligible for the funding. We are not 100% sure of this yet and we don't what the NHS will cover but will be looking for updates. It is also unknown which 5 hospitals will be performing the op. Fundraising will continue but if Peyton gets the chance to have the op done on the NHS and my funds aren't needed anymore, then I will find another very worthy cause for the money to go to. So please still donate and in the meantime I will keep you updated.

I started running in March 2017. something I never thought I would do. As I was well into my weight loss journey, I thought I'd give it a go. Loved it! Never thought I'd sign up for a half marathon but hey ho you only live once. let the training begin
