    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.

    Story

    You do not undertake the mammoth task of running a half marathon unless it's for something close to your heart. Running a half marathon is not turning up on the day and winging it. It is months and months of preparation. It is investing in your nutrition. It is giving up nights out drinking alcohol. It is hours and hours of long, hard and lonely training...come rain or shine.

    That something that is close to my heart is The Briggs Family. Every single step I run is with them in mind and I am honoured to run this race in memory of Tom to show my love and support for Sarah, Scarlet, Maggie and Stan. Any money raised will be donated, in his memory, to other families affected by cancer. ❤️❤️❤️

      Thank you so much to each and every one that donated. I am genuinely moved by your generosity and beyond grateful for all the support I've received. There have been many points through out the training where I've doubted myself, it's been difficult and lovely at times but here we are. I cannot believe I've completed it. Thank you all, so much again xxxxx
