Weʼve raised £310 to The Welcome Organisation which helps the homeless and The Belfast Tandem Bike Group who help the visually impaired take part in duathlons
- Waterworks, Belfast
- Funded on Sunday, 17th September 2017
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.
The Welcome Organisation who provide help for the homeless and vulnerable and I think that together we can all help those in need. I am always reminded of the advertising billboard from a few years ago which said, "we are all only two pay checks away from homelessness". People become homeless for a variety of reasons and we can all give a little to help a lot.
Secondly I would LOVE if we could raise enough to help purchase a tandem bike for use by The Belfast Tandem Cycling Group. These bikes are used for training and sporting events from tri and dualthons where a pilot rider will cycle with a visually impaired athlete. This makes sport more inclusive to all who want to try it and offers a greater sense of confidence for a rider who may never have tried to participate in these types of events. Lets make sport open to everyone who wants to try it!

About the fundraiser
Our 100th Parkrun is on 1st July and wanted to mark the occasion by raising money for these two very deserving groups. Tandem bikes allow visually impaired people with a guide to participate in more sports and homelessness is a problem that has the potential to face us all.
