Weʼre raising £300 to Skate 52 miles! I’ll donate 50% towards Mind Manchester and 50% towards sending our roller derby team to world champs in USA this year!

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.
I play Roller Derby with New Wheeled Order a team based in Manchester. They, through years of hard work, have been ranked 6th best in the world and so qualify for the world champs which will be held in Portland, USA this yesr.
Not everyone in the team can afford to fund a trip to champs and so we‘re trying to raise the funds to send a full roster of around 20 skaters to best represent the team and put up as good a fight as possible.
Manchester as a leaugue have also nominated Manchester Mind as a charity this year and so I am using this as an opportunity to raise funds for a charity that does some fantastic work with some of the most vulnerable people in society. Mental health is an issue very close to my heart and so I would love to be able to raise as much money as possible for them.
To raise funds I have foolishly decided to skate 52 miles, a double marathon! I have never done anywhere near this distance before and so I’m somewhat apprehensive. It’s for a good course though so I shall give it my all!
Anything at all you can donate would be hugely appreciated.
Thanks for reading and wish me luck, I have a feeling I may need it!
