Craig's campaign for Crohn's & Colitis UK

Who am I?

I'm Craig and I'm raising money in aid of Crohn's & Colitis UK by
streaming a marathon session of a game called Thumper on 7 December 2019.

Why Crohn's & Colitis UK?

This charity is close to my heart because my partner has been suffering from Crohn's disease for over 10 years now.

Twice during this time she has needed life-saving surgery to remove large portions of her large intestine. Aside from these major surgeries, there are countless times when she has been prevented from enjoying life because of being ill with Crohn's disease.

There is no cure for Crohn's disease and often very little support. Charities like Crohn's & Colitis UK are invaluable and are often the only place that people in our situation can turn to for support.

Every donation made to this charity will help support people like me and my partner who are struggling with the debilitating effects of Crohn's disease. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

Why Thumper?

Thumper is a challenging video game where a psychedelic space beetle needs to follow a track avoiding obstacles. In an abstract way it resembles hurtling down a hellish intestine so thematically it's quite appropriate for Crohn's disease.

The game is difficult, very fast and very intense. It'll be an immense challenge for me to play multiple levels in a single session. The more money that is donated the more levels I'll complete during the marathon on 7 December 2019. So donate generously to see me suffer!

£0+       -> Levels 1 - 5
£100+   -> Level 6
£200+   -> Level 7
£300+   -> Level 8
£400+   -> Level 9

Where can I watch this?

I'll be streaming the marathon live on and will also upload recorded footage of the marathon to afterwards.

This is going to take a lot of practice so I will also be streaming my practice sessions on daily until the marathon event happens.

More information about Crohn's & Colitis UK

Crohns Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, affecting more than 300,000 people in the UK. Yet it is largely a hidden disease, and one that causes stigma, fear and isolation, its thought that many people with the condition go undiagnosed and suffer in silence.
