About Blizzard Ponies

Blizzard Ponies are taking part in Race2Prague 2019 which is raising funds for Edinburgh Students' Charities Appeal

"Audrey is from Singapore. Sara is from Portugal.
Audrey studied Business and is now doing a masters in Art. Sara studied Art and just finished a masters in Linguistics.
They met 3 years ago playing Capoeira in Edinburgh and both enjoy life through playing, learning, and sharing. Another thing they have in common is a dear friend who brings sunshine to their Scotland and inspires them to go as far as their imagination takes them!

Audrey and Sara are the Blizzard Ponies! Bound together by a passion for traveling, they will forgo their love of warmth, blizzarding through peak-winter Europe until they reach Prague, to prove how strongly they feel about their cause!

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a rare and rapidly progressing terminal illness which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. The disease may cause someone to lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided. At present there is no known cause or cure for MND. More than half die within two years of diagnosis.

MND Scotland is the only Scottish charity providing care and support to people affected by Motor Neurone Disease (MND), as well as funding research into finding a cure. They provide hope for a world without MND.

Information provided by Dr Ruth Porter, Speech and Language Therapist, diagnosed with MND and affected with speech loss.

About MND:

- Average life expectancy is just 20 months after diagnosis.

- There are over 450 people in Scotland currently living with MND.

- On average almost 200 people are diagnosed each year in Scotland.

- 53% die within one year of diagnosis.

- 6.5% live for more than 5 years after diagnosis."

Donation Terms and Conditions.

Race Nation provides online registration and fundraising for mass participation events through our platform “SportsGiving”, helping to raise vital sums of money for many good causes. On all donations we charge a small fee of up to 5% of the donation (which includes card processing charges). We do not charge a fee on any Gift Aid claimed. This means that if you made a donation of £10 with Gift Aid (worth £2.50), the charity would receive a minimum of £12.00.

All donations made through SportsGiving are considered charitable gifts and are non-refundable.

SportsGiving and its partners and charities represented reserve the right to refuse to accept any donations and to refuse to supply goods or services to any individual without explanation.

When a donation is made through SportsGiving the transaction is final and not disputable unless unauthorised use of your payment card is proved. If you become aware of fraudulent use of your card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider and if a payment is made to SportsGiving on a stolen card, you must notify us immediately.

Online transactions are subject to a small fee levied by debit and credit card companies. These third party charges do not exceed 3.0% and are included within your donation. The organisers of the event are responsible for other bank charges.

By ticking the Gift Aid box, and providing your details, you are allowing us to treat your donations as a Gift Aid donation. If the donation is to be divided by multiple charities you understand that the Gift Aid claimed will also be split in the same proportions. You confirm that you are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
