Weʼre raising £3,000 to support special educational needs youngsters fulfill their athletics dreams and represent their country.
- Leicester, UK
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 have a very hard working group of young special needs runners who train upwards of 6 times a week, hold down part time jobs and work very hard educationally. They are dedicated, loyal and inspiring. All are capable of running for their country and or achieveing national status. Money stops this happening.
If they go on to represent GB there is no funding in their particular category - it costs 1000s of pounds they do not have.
They experience enough disadvantages as it is and i am doing my best to ensure money isn't one of them.They really do deserve the support and the chance to represent their country.
I will do my bit by cycling 100miles on their behalf in July. This frightens me to death!😕 Please help if you feel it a worthy cause.
All funds will be well used and provide definite benefits.
