Weʼve raised £1,475 to " Ride for Ewen " Fund to promote and help Young Mountain Bikers in Scotland.
- Perth, United Kingdom
- Funded on Thursday, 28th September 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On the 29th of October 2016 we lost Ewen Chisholm, a caring and inspirational leader in so many ways, whether this be in business, friends or family. In particular he had a real strength and passion in sport & development of others. Ewen was a much loved Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Uncle, and friend to many, and gave so much, and asked for so little.
Ewen was a complete rascal in his early years, keeping his Family much on their toes. Yet, an amazing example of wildness, energy and sporting ability later harnessed into sound and progressive business ability, whilst still creating fun, friendships and helping others. An amazing skier, nearly at Olympic Level, a mountain walker and later biker. A great sporting network created in everything he was involved with.
We are already gathering funds and planning some exiting and adventurous fundraising activities to help support several bike related projects, including the much needed regeneration of the Kirriemuir BMX track.
A cheque from SLR (Scottish Local retailer ) £2089.60
Donations through RideforEwen Decals for bikes, materials kindly donated through Tay graffix in Scone Perth . If you would like a sticker please send me a message .
The broad aim is to promote and support mountain biking development with young people in Scotland.
The organisational committee will be made up of the immediate family and up to five ' business heads' who have been involved with Ewen over the years and have become friends of the family.
We would like to highlight that we are not a charitable trust or foundation, nor regulated in anyway except by best practise and repute. Therefore there are minimal costs in running the fund.

Hope this helps Vicky! We only met Ewen 5 times at the BES races but he made a big impression. Life is harsh and very unfair at times so we should pull together those left holding the baton x
