    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 October, I will be flying out with a team from the 7th Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Scotland to support 8 wounded, ill and injured soldiers complete the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC. I will also be running the marathon with the team on the 22nd October for our chosen charities, The Allied Forces Foundation (AFF) and Erskine.

    The Allied Forces Foundation is a joint British-American foundation whose mission is to raise funds for allied comrades wounded in recent conflicts and to raise awareness of the ongoing challenges faced by injured soldiers and their families.

    Erskine is a charity which aims to care for service men and women who had been injured in active service. They provide unrivalled nursing, residential, respite and dementia care in their four homes throughout Scotland for UK veterans.

    I am looking to raise £1000 for these charities and any money that can be donated will be sure to go to two excellent causes. My aim is to run a sub 3 hour marathon, which if I complete I will make a personal contribution of £250.

    For more information on either of the charities please visit their websites to see the amazing work they do:

    AFF - http://alliedforcesfoundation.org/

    Erskine - https://www.erskine.org.uk/

    Any donations are greatly appreciated and will go a long way. Please donate as generously as possible.

      2/2 the run itself, unfortunately I didn't make my 3hr goal but all things considered I am happy with my performance for my first marathon, especially in 20+ degree heat (running sub 3:03 up until mile 20 before a collapse akin to Jonathan Brownlee severely hampered my time as I came in at 3:32). Thank you all again once more - you have all made a difference to the lives of the servicemen and women affected by recent conflict, in addition to the lives of their families.

      Firstly, thank you all to everyone who has donated to my marathon just past this Sunday. I am truly overwhelmed by the support and contribution everyone has made and I am indebted to you all. I am very privileged to have been able to run such a humbling and poignant marathon and I can assure you all that the money donated will massively impact those who need it the most.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. I'm truly grateful for everyone single donation and I know it will go a long way towards our two charities. With less than 3 weeks to go until the race, you can follow the last part of my training on my Strava account: https://www.strava.com/athletes/15162168 Having just got back from a sub 1:30 half marathon training run, it could be down to the wire for sub 3!
