    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.


    In October as part of #TeamDrew I will be running the Cardiff half marathon in memory of Drew Barker-Wright.
    In November 2016 3 year old Drew was diagnosed with a rare type of
    cancer that occurs in the skull base and spine. He was admitted to Oncology at Birmingham children's hospital where he began intensive chemotherapy and surgery. Drew's journey was fraught with complications from the outset. This was primarily due to the rareness and lack of documented cases. Sadly on the morning of February 24th 2017 Drew took his last breath at home with his parents Mel and John. His battle was brief and brutal but bravely fought for one so young.
    Since losing Drew Mel and John have tried to find positivity in all the heartache. The local and wider community raised a substantial amount of money during Drew's fight. They both felt that this needed to be spent on improving the chances of survival for other children with diagnosis.
    Currently , they are in the process of setting up a charitable trust in Drew's name. This charity will focus on raising money to fund paediatric chordoma research and support young children around the world whose lives have been devastated by this cancer.
    As their first event in Drew's memory Mel and John have assembled a team of 50+ runners to take part in Cardiff Half Marathon on 1st October 2017.
    They hope this will be the first of many events in Drew's memory with the aim to raise as much money as possible and improve the survival chances of paediatric chordoma worldwide.
    Please support me in memory of Mel and John's darling little boy Drew Barker-Wright.
