Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help promote Chiropractic as a career through schools and universities.
- Bath, UK
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.
There are not enough students choosing Chiropractic as a career. Backpain, and Musculoskeletal problems more generally, are one of the single biggest reasons why people visit their GP, and not only does it cost the NHS £6 billion annually, it also results in 10.8 million man days being lost to the economy every year. As we live longer, it is vital that we help people to keep active, healthy and pain free lives. Chiropractors are a key part in making that happen. I have dedicated 40 years of my professional life to organising, developing and promoting Chiropractic in the UK and now, for more people to benefit from Chiropractic care, we need to train more Chiropractors. I am riding from Bath to Paris in June 2018 to raise money for this cause. I am not a cyclist so this is quite a mission, but also quite an adventure. Please support me so that an increasing number of young people will have access to a great career and then many more people around the country will benefit from Chiropractic care to improve their health and wellbeing.
