Story

Hello, I am James and 14 years old. In September 2013 I had a rugby accident which means that I now can't play the game I love, although I still want to be involved in the game and want to be a referee so I have just taken the RFU level 2 referee course which I really enjoyed.

I raised money for the IPF in 2014 and was fortunate enough to see first hand what an amazing job they do for injured players and their families. I have met some of the injured players whose lives will never be the same again and I realise that I am so lucky not to be in their position and needing help myself. My neck injury happened over 2 years ago and although I still have nerve damage issues, I am very thankful that I have been able to carry on with my life fully, when others sadly can't.

I have decided to cycle the Coast2Coast in July and would be really grateful if you could help me raise more money to help those less fortunate than myself. The RFU pays for all administration costs of the IPF and so every penny I raise will go to those in need. Thank you very much.
