100 Mile Swim For Lupus UK

£104 of £500 goal

Raised by 6 people in 1 month
Created November 23, 2018
Hello, my name is Verity. 

Myself and some dedicated friends will be swimming 100 miles between January and April in 2019. 100 miles equates to 6,437 lengths of a 25 meter pool. 

I previously organised a fundraiser for Lupus UK to help raise awareness. Lupus has had an enormous impact on my life  as my grandmother, Patricia was diagnosed and later lost her life due to this disease. The time taken to diagnose played a large part as it was late and hindered much of the treatment.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease. The immune system mistakes the body's own tissues as foreign bodies or invaders and attacks them. The general treatment of Lupus has to be tailored to an individual to control the symptoms and hope to slow the damage to organs.

This swim in honour of my Grandmother.
It’s not only to raise awareness but to hopefully generate a little money to go towards research. 

So please donate any sum of pennies you may have, and if you would like to take part and swim a few lengths that would be greatly appreciated.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
