£560raised of £500 target by 14 supporters

    Weʼve raised £560 to support the efforts of The White Helmets

    Water of Life Half Marathon - Bisham (21 October 2018)
    Funded on Saturday, 27th October 2018

    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.


    After suffering a slight injury (twist in my spine/varicose vein causing an issue in sole of my foot to my knee) I am now running the Water of Life half marathan on October 21 rather than the Maidenhead half marathon on Sunday Sept 2. I need some time to recover and at least not start a broken woman (finish perhaps)!

    I will be raising money for The White Helmets again!

    Please support me as every penny counts!

    When the bombs rain down, the Syrian Civil Defence rushes in. In a place where public services no longer function these unarmed volunteers risk their lives to help anyone in need - regardless of their religion or politics. Known as the White Helmets these volunteer rescue workers operate in the most dangerous place on earth.

    As the conflict in Syria worsens, ordinary people are paying the highest price. More than 50 bombs and mortars a day land on some neighbourhoods in Syria. Many are rusty barrels filled with nails and explosives, rolled out the back of government helicopters -- bakeries and markets are the most commonly hit targets. When this happens the White Helmets rush in to search for life in the rubble - fully aware that more bombs may fall on the same site. These volunteers have saved more than 114,431 lives - and this number is growing daily.

      Today I dug deeper than I ever have! The last 3 miles nearly sent me over the edge. Lack of training, lots of inclines, running on continuously changing ground such as grass, mud, and stones and going through a what felt like a million field gates pushed me to the max. With not many runners taking part and what felt like no spectators it was down to my mental power to pull me through. Today I came in at 2hrs 15 (waiting on official email) and I raised another £540 (thank you for your donations) for The White Helmets xx

      Dear supporters A slight change due to injury! I am now running the Oct half Marathon (Water of Life) rather than the September Maidenhead challenge. I am super disappointed but it makes no sense to start off a broken woman. After a second session with my physio today my body isn't ready and it is out of my hands. Thank you for all your support and I will carry on training as soon as I can. More details on my JustGiving page. Both ways I plan to nail it in October!!! Thanks S S
