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.
Two years ago I struggled to run a few metres then I followed the NHS Couch to 5K programme and after 9 weeks could run 5 kilometers. I have now completed 27 Saturday morning 5k Parkruns. So, I decided to step it up and have entered the Cardiff 10k on September 2nd. Training is going well and I hope to complete the run in 60 to 70 minutes. I have set up a Just Giving page but I’m not doing it for charity. I’m doing it for myself and if you would like to buy me a beer that would be great.
