Weʼre raising £600 to help fund Spartac Gym Club's Gymnaestrada Austria 2019 AND donations for Queenscourt Hospice, Southport

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.
On September 9th 2018 I will be running the 10 mile Tough Mudder obstacle race in Cheshire to raise money for two fantastic causes.
Firstly, half of the donations will go to The Active Therapy Foundation, an inclusive charity which improves the lives of disabled children and adults through gymnastics. I have volunteered as a coach here for nearly 3 years and have had some fantastic experiences with them. In July 2019, we will be representing Great Britain at the World Gymnaestrada in Austria, performing in front of thousands of people. Any donations will go towards funding travel and kit for the gymnasts.
The other half will go to Queenscourt Hospice in Southport, who provide care and support for seriously ill patients. They have cared for family members and friends, and giving back to them would mean the world to me.
Thank you to everyone who donated to my first fundraiser, after damaging my knee I had to change my Tough Mudder to September instead of April, so I will be putting all the donations together before splitting the total between the two charities.
