    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

    This campaign is to raise money for Kenyan athlete Recho Kosgei who many people will have seen footage of struggling at the end of the Warsaw Marathon on Sunday 24 September 2017. The aim is to raise £4,000 which is equivalent to the prize money for first place (20,000 Polish Zloty).

    Recho collapsed only 800m from the finish line after having built up a 3 minute lead and looking certain to take the win. She was suffering from acute dehydration after missing her water bottles during the race. Recho has 4 children and runs to support her family. Her daughter has a heart problem and in the last months the family has struggled to fund the necessary medication. Recho had prepared well for the race and hoped to win in order to provide some financial security for the family.

    Recho has returned to Kenya and is in good health but we would like to help her and her family and would welcome any donations from well-wishers. Any funds raised will be sent directly to Recho in Kenya.
