£50KB450 – My new fundraising challenge!

So I created a new page last week about my brand new fundraising challenge, and thought I’d just talk about it a bit on here as I’m really excited about it.

Any of you who know me in person, know that I can’t really sit back and mope about my relapse, but that to stop me from doing that, I need something really positive to keep me busy and focused elsewhere.

So, about a month ago, I decided that I would set up a challenge for myself, to raise £50,000 before my 50th birthday in 2025. Now, I know that seems a long time off, but I am very realistic that I have a long and challenging 18 months ahead of me….not to mention that Nick will absolutely kill me if I try and do anything major during that period.

So, I decided that not only would I give myself a long lead into this fundraising, but that I would try to make it focus on calling in other people to help me reach my target given how big it is. The idea being that if I could persuade friends, family and others to take part by doing their own fundraising, that we would raise awareness across the world, let alone in the UK. And hopefully the £50,000 too! I’m already doing pretty well asking 50 businesses to donate £50 – so if you know anyone who might want to do that, put them in touch!

So take a look here at my £50KB450 page to find out more.

And if that inspires you, why not think about whether you can do an event or activity that raises money for Myeloma UK, and then either donate via my £50KB450 fundraising page, or set up your own just giving page, join my £50KB450 team, and it all contributes to my target 🙂

If you’re on Facebook, please feel free to pop over and like my page too! http://www.facebook.com/50kB450

If you’d like to help but aren’t sure how, I’m always happy to have a chat….just bear with me as I start my treatment as I may not come back to you straightaway!

About Deb Gascoyne

I am wife of one, mother of two (& a dog!) and a person in my own right😊. I have used my diagnosis of myeloma to allow me to focus on what I CAN achieve and not what I can't. My blog is a way of me spilling out....it is for me more than you I'm afraid. But if it helps you along the way, that is an absolute bonus for me :-) Diagnosed in 2009 with smouldering myeloma, I started treatment in 2010 and had a SCT in 2011. I’ve been on maintenance since then until November 2018 but my figures went up so am now officially relapsed and have just started DVD treatment (July 2019)
