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.
Having competed in over 20 triathlons to date I have never attempted to raise money for a cause. It’s always simply been about just doing the race and having fun. Last year however, I took part in an IRONMAN 70:3 race in Austria. That in itself way very tough and it made me feel that I could, I should, I must do more to help those who are less fortunate than myself.
For that reason I'm doing another IRONMAN 70:3 race in 2018 as well as an additional 6 races. I’m going to be putting my body through a new level of endurance to prove that the human body is very capable and astonishing. To the extent that we all take what we have for granted and we can all try and contribute just a little bit to those who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
With that in mind, you all have 2 options, either take part and participate with me.... or donate what you can to show your support.
