£810raised of £3,200 target by 42 supporters

    Weʼve raised £810 to buy Shannon a special therapeutic Molli suit which will vastly improve her quality of life.

    Swansea, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 17th December 2017

    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 Shannon is an event that aims to mobilise 60 local volunteers to run a 60 mile relay from the LifePoint Centre in Swansea all the way to Shannon's home in Pembrokeshire. We want to deliver her a special therapeutic Mollii suit which uses low frequency electro-stimulation to enhance the body’s neurological reflexes. In trials this has made a huge difference to Shannon and will significantly improve her quality of life.

    Currently Mollii suits are not available on the NHS so we thought that together we could provide this life changing equipment.

    Each of the 60 participants, many of whom are new to running, will complete one of the 60 miles until the baton and the suit arrive at Shannon's home late on Saturday 7th October. As well as the 60 runners, members of the LifePoint ladies running club will be running 5 miles each to accompany the relay runners. Members of Equinox Physiotherapy Partnership Ltd, who have played a vital role in Shannon's care will be assisting on the day to support the runners. A team of drivers from LifePoint Church will make sure that each runner is dropped off at their relay position and returned home after completing their mile.

    Your generous donation here will be added to sponsorship money raised by the runners to help us reach our target of £3200 so please give all that you can.

    If you would like to get involved with the event on the day as a driver or runner then please contact me on

      I was with young Shannon yesterday - she held our relay baton in her hand! I told her about all the people that are running and giving because they care for her. Thank you Michael Phippen, Amy, Tommy Geach, Sisi Jones - and the others who have given anonymously here at the JustGiving page. So grateful....
