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.

This year I will have been Diabetic for 25 years. To mark my 25th “Diaversary” I am going to complete twenty-five 5km runs between now and the 16th September 2018. Then I’m going to complete the Worcester 10k.
Earlier this year I learned about the Life For a Child programme which has helped over 18,500 children in 40 developing countries to manage their diabetes. These are children who have to travel over four hours just to get life saving insulin, whose families might have to choose between paying to send them to school or paying to keep them alive. It costs approximately £45 to fund insulin and diabetes education for one child for one year. I want to raise enough money to help at least 25 children because I believe in the programme's mission - NO CHILD SHOULD DIE OF DIABETES.

About the fundraiser
West Midlands, UK
25 years ago I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I'm fortunate enough to live in a country where my needs are met by the health service. Now it's time to help some children who aren't so fortunate because no child deserves to die from Diabetes.
