You've made it! Welcome to my fundraising page. I know, I know, I'm really not too sure why I entered, I quite like having 10 toenails and 2 nipples but alas there's no going back now. I will be running for the MS Society. They are the biggest charitable funder of MS research in the UK. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that affects the brain and spinal cord. Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialists can help you to manage the condition and its symptoms. MS is complex, and has many symptoms. More than 100,000 people in the UK have MS. Symptoms usually start in your 20s and 30s and it affects almost three times as many women as men. The cause is unknown and a cure is yet to be found, but research is progressing fast. The MS Society funds research, provides grants, campaigns for change, provides information and support, invests in MS specialists and lends a listening ear to those who need it. My own struggle is a daunting 31 week, 121 run, 667-mile training plan and of course the final BIG day. But despite how mammoth this task seems, thinking of those close to me who are living with MS puts everything into perspective and continues to motivate and inspire me as I hope it will for you too. So when donating be a babe and give generously :) Please feel free to join me anytime whilst I pound the pavements of London & Essex. Thank you all so much!Much love Toni x
The Race That Counts A famous ultra runner once said to me “you have to go for the race that counts”. Two years ago, on a holiday in France, I found that race – the UTMB (Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc). 171km and 10,300 metres of ascent (and descent – there aren’t many flat parts on this run!), 46.5 hours cut off time and two nights of running, following the Tour de Mont-Blanc hiking path through the Alps in France, Italy and Switzerland. * 2 years of preparation* Over 2,000 training miles* 4 qualifying races (1x50 miles, 2x100 miles and 1x110 miles)* And many glasses of wine I had to say no to! And I now have a place in the UTMB 2018! :-) I decided to run the race for charity. The race means everything to me but running it for charity makes it so much more important. Please support me and the two amazing organisations I am raising funds for: * The Motor Neurone Disease Association - this is for my dear friend Mike Crisp and his family. Mike – you are one of the bravest people I know. I admire how you embrace life. * The Ultra Sports Science Foundation – they do some fantastic research for the very sport I love and they are the organisation that is giving me the place in the UTMB. Thank you. Now all I have to do is train for the race… Thank you for your support! Svenja
Welcome to this money pot!Eleanor was diagnosed with bone cancer and, sadly, at the beginning of October 2017, had to have part of her leg removed. Throughout the whole of the ordeal, Eleanor and her family have been incredibly brave in how they have dealt with the news and we wanted to help them out in any way we can. So, to support Eleanor and her family, a few of us have decided to hold a ‘charitable’ year of fundraising to assist with this transition, to run from November 2017 to November 2018. We are hoping to hold a different, exciting event every month for the whole year. This will start with a raffle next month, where winners will be able to claim some fantastic prizes, in addition, there will be various challenges undertaken where sponsorship will be sought. For the slightly less energetic, a summer tea party is also planned. The fundraising year will culminate in November 2018 with a grand ball. Any further support would be greatly appreciated and if you have any further ideas, or are already doing something and are looking for a charitable cause to link this to, please consider using Think Pink for Eleanor Be warned though, as the title suggests there will be lots of pink involved……..and sparkles and glitter!
Hello, I will be running the Colchester Half Marathon on 25th March 2018 and I would love your sponsorship! I have been running for a few years but only short distances of 5k or 10k maximum. Having had a good 10k run in September and maybe a few celebratory drinks afterwards my friends convinced me to enter the Colchester Half Marathon. This is a massive challenge for me and the only way I agreed to it was if I could put my running to good use and support a charity. My chosen charity is Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa. I have been a supporter of Emoya for over 18 months. They are a rescue centre for big cats and currently have 37 lions and 2 Siberian tigers. The lions and tigers live in very large species appropriate areas and many have been rescued from circuses, having suffered some horrendous long term injuries from their keepers. Emoya gives these big cats the chance to live out the rest of their lives in the semi wild as they could never be put back into the wild. Currently Emoya Sanctuary is in the process of relocating #3lionesses from the Ukraine to SA and all the money you donate will be funding this project. Please look them up:www.emoya.org.za/3lionesses/ I hope you'll support me by making a donation to this very worthwhile charity, your donation will keep me focused during all 21 kilometers!

For Kids Who Can't // Rome Marathon 2018 Humans are amazing, arent they? Our bodies can do incredible things, physical strength has the potential to be bound and shaped and deepened. But these bodies - They let us down too. As much as we are strong and fearless, we are fragile and susceptble to weakness. We will never be immune to sickness, nor age. – And so while we are able, we must be grateful – Meet Lauren Moyo: Photograph of Lauren and Mithe, supporter of Kidzcan and wife of the American ambassador. Lauren is 11 years old, Zimbabwean, and fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma with the help of Kidzcan, a cancer relief foundation for children in Zimbabwe. As we put on our shoes every morning, have a cup of coffee and get about our day, Lauren and her family are summoning up the courage to face a day of fighting an illness that no child should have to endure. On the 8th of April this year, the two of us will be running the Rome marathon – probably incredibly slowly! – But nonetheless we plan on raising £10 for Lauren for every km. Friends, if you would like to sponsor 1km, 5kms, half a km, or even 100m of this run your money will be going towards a beaaauuutiful and very brave little girl. It's not a lot, but Kidzcan have said that every single cent makes a difference. Anything over and above will be going to Tembaletu, a school for disabled children in Cape Town, South Africa - This amazing organisation provides education for disabled learners and need all the help they can get to provide transport, technology and salaries to continue growing and shaping the lives of children. For more information on these 2 worthy causes, check out the links below:https://www.kidzcanzimbabwe.org https://tembaletuschool.wordpress.com We would so love you to be a part of our small journey... and also part of a much bigger, much more beautiful story, which is the lives of some pretty incredible kids. @jackdelafargue & @nataliedumontdechassart
Welcome to this money pot Darcy's Equine Assisted Learning Centre CIC (not for profit) Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is a unique Horse Based Learning Programme offering National Qualifications, facilitating change through interactions with horses. EAL aims to raise the aspirations of disengaged and vulnerable young people and adults, equipping clients with the personal skills, transferable skills and self-belief required to re-engage with full time education or employment. EAL does not teach horse riding, all the work is done on the ground. Clients learn about horse behaviour and horse awareness training techniques and in doing so learn a range of skills which are essential for success in education, employment and for building relationships with others. EAL helps with: Difficulties with traditional schooling; Special educational needs; Increasing self confidence; Poor mental health; Raising self esteem; Team building; Improving communication skills; Changing established behaviour patterns. We have lots of learners visiting our Centre throughout the year, however now we would like the opportunity to take our horses out to meet those people who, for whatever reason, cannot come to visit us, this includes people in residential care or nursing homes, We have also been approached by schools who have asked us to visit with the ponies and work with children with social, emotional or behavioural issues. In order to do this we need to raise money to buy a trailer to transport the ponies. It will be 2nd hand and cost around £2600. Lockton Companies LLP sent a team of volunteers to Darcy's last year. Whilst there, they created a sensory garden which has already been used and thoroughly enjoyed by some of our learners. James Callender, who is an employee of Lockton's has decided that he wants to help us to reach out to others who will benefit from the work we do. James is competing in the Barcelona Marathon on Sunday 11th March 2018 and has decided to run on behalf of Darcy's. Any sponsorship money raised will be put towards the purchase of our new trailer. Any donations given would be greatly appreciated. Thank You! https://www.darcysequineassistedlearningcentre.co.uk/ Click to make a contribution.* Give however much you want.* All payments are secure
Welcome to DUVC's annual fundraiser, every year the committee gets together and plays 12 hours of non-stop volleyball to raise some money and give back to our community. This year we decided to raise the money for something that is very dear to our hearts. Jamie Shannon joined DUVC whilst he studied at the University of Dundee and was an extremely committed member of the club, giving everything he could to help better the club during his time as president. He was an amazing volleyball player and an even better friend to those who were lucky enough to have made his aquiantance during his time with DUVC. Sadly Jamie suffered an extremely unfortunate accident whilst tourguiding around Orkney. As Jamie was such a big part of DUVC we only found it appropriate to raise as much as possible for the people that tried to help him in his time of need. The Orkney Emergency Services is mainly made up of volunteers. These amazing people put their own lives at risk to go to the aid of others and the upkeep of the service is only possible through donations. We believe this is a cause which truly deserves as much as we can give so please donate and check our facebook event for more details of how to get involved: https://www.facebook.com/events/144850506206352/

ZAMBIA 2018 My name is Izzy Marriner and I've set up this fundraising page as in 2018 I am going to Zambia to do charity work. My aim while I am there is to use sport as a tool of development and enhance the lives of the children living in the poor conditions there. My main aim is to have a smile on every child's face, and make a difference. It will be an eye opening experience that really shows the difference in lifestyles and this money will fund me to go and help out there. PLEASE donate as much or as little as you wish, it's all for an amazing cause and every little helps.

2018 is a very special year.Not only is it the 15th Birthday of Haven House Children's Hospice, where I work as a fundraiser (they have supported over 900 children with life limited conditions and their families since opening in 2003), it is also 100 years since some women first won the vote in the UK. The Fawcett Society are a brilliant charity that continue to fight for gender equality. I pledge to a year of fundraising for these two special causes. Starting off with the International Women’s Day virtual 10k in March and Brighton Marathon in April and finishing with the Verona Marathon in November, I'll also be doing a few other bits along the way. I'm pledging to join Haven House #Team15 and the Fawcett Society #OurTimeNow movement! Unfortunately I can't find an online giving platform that allows me to fundraise for them both at the same time, so I'm using leetchi, which collects all donations in a pot and then I will split the funds raised and donate to each charity.

Jac the Buzzard was found near Glendaruel at the end of November 2017, she was on the ground and not wanting to fly, the person who found her was able to pick her up very easily and called Barbara's Wildlife Rescue. When we got her she was very lethargic and skinny, no obvious signs of injury and it really didn’t look good - it was touch and go for the next couple days. Jac started to eat and we were able to look into what could have caused a wild buzzard to be so gravely ill, but apart from being underweight and having a swollen toe, she was ok. We hoped with a bit of food, a couple health tests and some rest she would soon be released - how wrong we were... It became apparent very quickly that 'Jac' wasn’t your average wild Buzzard, she was happy being handled, while in the house surrounded by all things that should make a wild bird stressed, she relaxed, she preened, she watched tv and solicited human contact, all signs she has been hand reared and then either escaped or released. However, without the skills to hunt, she was served a death sentence, luckily she was found. Unluckily Jac's foot ballooned over the next few days and neither x-rays or various tests gave us anything else to go on. At one point we thought we had it under control but sadly is wasn’t so. Jac has had a number of investigatory operations & antibiotics over the last few weeks with wound flush and bandage changes every 2 days but the tendons and the bones in her leg are now at risk from the infection, as are her toes - she now needs transferred to a specialist to see what options we have, incurring costs we simply cant afford. Buzzards, along with many Birds of Prey are still persecuted, despite being protected, please if you can donate, help us help this one ...Its not clear yet wheither or not Jac will be releasable, we need to deal with the foot before we can look at the behaviour but she will be given every chance possible with the funds we have. As always if she cant be released she will live out her days here at the rescue helping to educate people about these beautiful creatures. Thanks for your time, and if you can; your donation. Jac & Barbara xx
This money goes to all the Muslim Countries suffering in this world.It is absolutely central to the Muslim identity to feel care and compassion for one’s fellow human beings. Several ahadith (sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) refer to this deep affection and brotherhood: “you will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”; “the believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever”. If a Muslim feels the pain of his or her fellow human being, and wishes the same comfort and good life for others which he wishes for himself – it is a natural reaction to give in charity, to ease this suffering.As well as the indisputable benefits for those receiving charity, Islam also highlights the spiritual need of those with wealth to give some of it away selflessly. It helps Muslims to remember that they are humble before Allah, and that every blessing they have in this life comes from Him – therefore they must not hoard it, but recognise that He wishes for us to be compassionate and share our provisions with our brothers and sisters in humanity. Indeed, the Qur’an warns against any feelings of pride, or reminding others of the charity one has given: “you who believe, do not cancel out your charitable deeds with reminders and hurtful words” (2:262). It also reminds us that there is a “recognised right, for the needy and deprived” over our wealth (70:24-5), so by giving, a Muslim is fulfilling a duty to those in need, preventing him or her from becoming proud of their own generosity.In the Qur’an, Allah describes those who prevent the supporting of orphans and the feeding of the poor as “those who reject the faith” (107:1-3), while emphasising that charity should be given in “prosperity or adversity” (3:134), without fear for one’s wealth, and having faith that a sincere act of giving can only bring abundant reward to the giver: “those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains” (2:261). Indeed, one of the five central pillars of Islam is zakat, or almsgiving – the obligatory tax due on an adult Muslim’s wealth every year, dedicated to supporting the poor and needy – making charity an undeniable cornerstone of the faith.
