    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Adam is 12 year old boy who loves football his favourite football teams are Plymouth Argyle & Liverpool. Adam used to play until his illness prevented him from continuing 18 months ago. Initially it was thought it was his epilepsy getting worse but in March of this year Adam was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension (PH), which is a serious life-limiting progressive medical condition with no current cure. Adam is now a patient at Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital.

    Adam is now on seven different types of medication for his epilepsy and PH. Recently, Adam underwent a Cardiac Catheter scan and he has had a Hickman line fitted to his heart which will deliver his medication directly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This medication is aimed at prolonging Adam’s life for as long as possible.

    On August 18th 2017, a group of friends will walk a distance of 26.2miles between Saltash, Callington, Liskeard and Looe in Cornwall. All funds raised by the event will go directly to support Adam and his family as they attempt to deal with the costs of Adam’s regular trips to Great Ormond Street in London.
