    Funded on Wednesday, 25th October 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.


    Hi all, I'm running the Birmingham International marathon on Sunday the 15th of October 2017, (Yes 26.2 miles!!!!!!). I was asked if I would run the marathon on behalf of Parks 4 Play, by a very close family friend, which I gladly accepted.

    Parks 4 Play are a Birmingham based charity that run play and leisure clubs, that give priority access to local children and young people with medical conditions, causing special educational needs, learning difficulties, physical disabilities or behavioural problems.
    Parks 4 Play refuse to exclude any individual, on the grounds of their disability and also welcome their families and local friends.

    My close family friends who asked me to raise money for this amazing charity, use and benefit from Parks 4 Play as an aid and support for there family. Seeing myself the immense support and happiness this charity brings to them and other families in Birmingham, I feel completing this challenge of the Birmingham marathon a privilege, to ensure this charity can maintain, even better the epic support they give to families in need of support and a well deserved rest.

    I thank all those now who will be supporting me and please help me reach my target of £350 for Park 4 Play.
