In December 2018, myself and a friend challenged ourselves to complete a 100 mile triathlon to raise money for charity. The event was due to happen in June 2019, so we had a six month period to plan, organise and train for it. Because we were doing our own event, we had to invest a huge amount of time and energy into every single aspect of our challenge: liaising with the charities, finding sponsors, designing a kit, getting the kit made, making a training plan, organising fundraising events, spreading awareness... The list is very long.

After experiencing all of this myself, I've begun to wonder how many people are put off from creating their own challenge to raise money for charity, purely because of the amount of time and energy it takes to make everything a reality. Even if it's only 1 in every 1000 people, that's still over 7.5 million people around the world.

I am a design student at Brunel University, and I want to solve this problem for others through my major project. I want to create a platform that brings all those necessary elements together in a single experience, making it easier for people to raise money for charity through sporting events or world record attempts. As well as helping those people looking to raise money, this would also make it easier for charities and businesses to support those people and causes they identify with.

If you have any positive feelings towards this idea, please sign my petition and help me make some positive change to people's lives!
