Get Julia to The Chinese Wife Carrying Race!

I'm Julia Galvin, I'm a novelty sports enthusiast, and I've just been offered a trip to China for their National Wife Carrying Championships! It's on at the end of the month so fundraising time is tight. 
For those of you that don't know me...When I was 27 in an accident and had a Zimmer frame for 3 years. I was on a lot of medication to deal with the incessant pain. It was at this time I discovered bog snorkelling! Which, I swore that I'd do if I ever walked again! This led to me learning how to swim and bog snorkel!
In 2004 I went on to become Ladies World Champion Mountain Bike Bog snorkeller! Through jigs and reels, this led me to  the Wife Carrying World Championships in Sonkajärvi , Finland!
Why do I do these sports? Because I know that I inspire people to do things... "If Juls can give a thing a go, so can you!"
I'll add a video so you can see my motivation" 
A small donation would be fab a big donation  even better! If you can't help financially,it's ok!  Please help by sharing with others.. especially people who work in media  or marketing!
I am willing to wear logos etc.  And go on radio / t.v. and promote your business! ...a blank t-shirt is a lost opportunity! 
Many thanks! Julia
