£1,795raised of £1,500 target by 84 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,795 to donate to Owen's chosen charities after his Superhero Triathlon!

    Funded on Monday, 1st October 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.

    Story

    On the 18th of August our very own superhero, Owen, will be entering his first ever triathlon and taking on the Superhero Tri at Eton Dorney. Every superhero needs a sidekick so I will be dressing up and joining him and, as swimming isn't Owen's superpower, I will be taking on the challenge of the swim stage whilst towing him behind in an inflatable dinghy tied around my waist. Having cerebral palsy means that this triathlon is a huge challenge for him but he is training hard and is determined to do his best!

    Owen has decided that he'd like to raise money for two charities that mean a lot to him:

    Petts Wood Playgroup for Children with Special Needs - a wonderful place now in it's 50th year (!) that did so much for Owen during his early years and is so dear to us as a family.

    Bradbourne Group Riding for the Disabled Association - the fabulous riding school that Owen & Miles visit weekly and where they have so much fun that they forget that it's actually physio!

    Owen has set himself a target of raising £200 but I think that he's being far too modest and we can smash that target. Please donate what you can and help to keep that infectious smile on Owen's face.

    Thanks, Kirsty.

      He did it!! HUGE thanks to everyone that has supported him along the way, we have all been overwhelmed by your amazing generosity. In total Owen has raised just over £2500 which is an astonishing amount and will go a long way in helping some very worthy causes. Apparently he wants to do it all again next year (hopefully by then I will have recovered from this one!) so watch this space!!

      I can’t believe he’s surpassed another target!! Huge thanks to everyone for your amazing generosity, Owen is absolutely astounded at how much he has raised so far and is really enjoying reading all of your lovely messages. With just over 3 weeks to go I think we’re going to raise the target one final time....
