Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The brain, it is who we are, it’s our personality, our memories, our values and beliefs, our sense of humour, our love and affection. And yet, it’s so fragile.
A severe brain injury can affect someone physically and/or mentally. The brain controls our limbs and our vital organs, an athlete can be wheelchair bound for the rest of their lives from a brain injury, it can change the personality of a loved one. The personality we knew, ceases to be.
I wish I could do more to help victims of brain injury, my wife’s cousin was one of them, he was seriously injured when a driver ran a red light at a pelican crossing causing him to be severely mentally and physically handicapped.
My way of helping is through fundraising for a charity called Head First.
Our brains don’t recover well from severe injury. Head first use the donations they receive to fund research into helping the brain recover and also, to make the lives of brain injury victims much better.
The Iron level Triathlon, known as the IronMan, is considered an extreme physical event starting with a swim of 2.4 miles followed by a cycle race of 112 miles and then a marathon run of 26.2 miles. To complete the Ironman is as much about mental fitness and attitude as is the physical requirements.
I’m taking part in the 2019 Nottingham Iron level triathlon and I welcome all donations to Head First as this will spur me on to the finish.
