Weʼre raising £500 to raise money for the charities Aaron's Battle and C.R.Y.
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.
We are team 7 from NCS. We are fundraising with an aim to donate money to two amazing charities being C.R.Y and Aaron's Battle.
Aaron's Battle is for a young man who was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer in 2016. He was repeatedly misdiagnosed with hayfever so by the time the cancer was discovered it had spread throughout his body. After months of treatment Aaron rang the bell to signify the end of this long and painful battle however after two short months of 'normal life' Aaron and his girlfriend recieved the terrible news that the cancer had returned in August 2017. Aaron's only hope is having a private treatment which is very expensive and not available in the UK. To get this, he needs to raise £300,000. £125,423 has already been raised so any help we can give will help to make a huge difference in Aaron's life.
C.R.Y is a charity based on Cardiac risk in the young. Cry offers emotional and clinical support following a young sudden cardiac death. They work to give young children the choice to be tested to see if they are at any risk and also make sure that it is done cost effectively. Their research programme gives them access to general population based data (comparing athletes, ethnicities and gender). The better the understanding of the risks the more chance they have of identifying and treating the risk. Raising awareness is important because it helps identify those at risk as well as ensuring that people get the correct clinical practice.
We hope that the money we raise and give to C.R.Y goes towards a defibrillator to be bought and put somewhere suitable in the local area as it may save a life.
