    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Anna, Rosie and Helen are running novices and despite that have (heroically) pledged to run the Edinburgh half Marathon! The run is over 13 miles and will take them from Holyrood Park beyond Musselburgh on 28th May 2017. Hoping for a dry day!

    They are running for a charity called FCIC which helps children affected by facial deformities in Cambodia. Read more below.

    *** #runforFCIC is our official hashtag on twitter & instagram! ***

      Want to know what training has been like for Rosie? She's written a blog about her exploits along the way so far - 4 weeks to go till the run! Yesterday she teamed up with some pals and ran 10 miles from Kilpatrick to Loch Lomond. Exhausting but worth it! So close to the 13 miles now! There's still time to support us, so please share our journey and help us help children in Cambodia suffering deformities. It's a good cause!

      With less than 8 weeks to go, we're all pushing ourselves to ensure we can (semi respectably) finish this May half marathon! We're all new to running, so it's a tough challenge. Last week, Anna and Rosie both ran 10km (6 miles), almost reaching a halfway distance. YASS! What keeps us going is that everything you donate will go towards improving lives for children affected by clefts in Cambodia. It's debilitating to be affected by facial deformity, but the work FCIC does changes lives. Thanks to all donators so far! x
