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.


This year I've set myself the challenge to train and run in a series of events leading up to entering a local half Marathon in September. I started training around April 2017 and now have set my first of several challenges.

50 miles in March, April and May.......150 miles in 3 months

Following this I will be participating in 5k and 10k Races, then Redcar half marathon... and maybe a few other cheeky events inbetween .....

The reason I'm doing this, the NHS..... The RVI Newcastle Children's Hospital has played a major role in my sons and families life over the past four years and I cannot Thank them enough for their encouragement, help and everything that they have done for my son. Unfortunately some children experience long stays, and for parents too, the days are long....... This year I finally feel like I have time to train and challenge myself to raise some money for the children's department so they can invest in toys/books/entertainment etc. to help families when staying in hospital.

Thanks for reading this, I will keep you updated

    Eston Nab Hardmoors 10k ⛰. What a morning ! Fantastic crowd of people , great event. Lived up to the hardmoors name and wasn’t easy but managed to stumble through it. This wasn’t the finish line but at the top of a blooming great hill !!!! I assumed it was downhill from this point which is why I’m smiling ... but I was very wrong !
