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.


**UPDATED 16/08/18** We are a Local Running group of all abilities and we are aiming to have a “Marathon Year” were we are hoping to get as many of our runners involved & taking part in as many local marathons as possible in 2018, This is by no means a small task, a few are our more experienced runners while others have just completed our Couch to 5K Program. and others are pushing towards their first 10K, but all will be pushing themselves outside and well beyond their comfort zone to take part in Local Marathons at some point in 2018 for charity.

We are progressing well into our "Marathon Year", Our 2 runners Brendan McCamphill & Thomas Darragh are continuing to run their 10 half marathons with No.8 just completed at the weekend along the Causeway Coastal Route in "More than a Marathon" The group of Runners training for Dublin full marathon in October are all well settled into their training plans, we hope to give you more information on these individuals over the coming weeks. and the group of runners who took part in Belfast Marathon will be out again in force in Derry at the start of September to complete the Walled City Half Marathon. there has been great donations & support for them all so far. lets hope it continues as we have many more runners planning to take part in various other marathons throughout 2018 we will give more information as they progress. if you would like to take part dont forget Rasharkin Annual Charity Event takes place on Sat 01st September were there is something for all, Walkers, Runners, a Cycle, or Duathalon. with some of the money raised going towards our charity.

With your help we hope to raise vital funding for a local charity Friends of Laurel House and MacMillan Nurses. They are locally based and supply care and support to cancer patients and there families at Laural House at Antrim Area Hospital. Being local some of our runners and their families have experienced first hand the great work they do and the challanges they face.

The MacMillan charity aim to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as more people live longer with their cancer, this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030. MacMillan want to make sure they can provide support to everyone who needs it, to help people affected by cancer feel more in control of their lives. It’s a big task and they can’t do it alone. any donations encouragement or support no matter how great or small is greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks. All at Rasharkin Runners.
