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.


Run for Dementia:

We've all come up against some difficulties in life and things that rock us to our foundations. Loosing my mum has been the toughest thing I've had to experience in my life, she had dementia for 7 years.

Dementia stole our mum little bits at a time; sometimes called the long goodbye. It's very difficult watching your mum go through this disease and only I had a fantastic family of brothers and sisters we helped make life a little better for mum.

Your mum's your mum and like Seamus Heaney once penned; "Being with her was a cure you didn't notice happening". Even in the midst of dementia it was a joy to be in her company, she didn't know us and didn't say a lot at the last, but we loved being with her.

I'm doing my first Marathon in Dublin on 28th October 2018. Everyone who knows me calls me the 'Run for Autism' man. I've never had the time to train for a marathon before but this year I'm making time, and I'm going to do it in my mum's name and for those suffering with dementia.

All proceeds donated to this fundraising page will be given directly to dementia projects across Counties Armagh and Down in Northern Ireland. I'll publicly be posting how much was eventually raised and to which projects will benefit later this year.

For my Angel x
