Matt’s story

In November 2018, my beloved son, Jack took his own life, aged just 16. I miss him day in, day out and want to achieve something positive in his memory.


Since then, I have found it difficult to find the motivation to run but on October 13th 2019, I will be one of only a few people to take part in all 10 Kielder Marathons in as many years and I am determined to complete it and raise some valuable funds for the amazing work that the If U Care Share Foundation does.


A North East based charity, they work with schools, colleges, youth groups and sports clubs up and down the UK, engaging with young people to help them see that suicide is not the solution to their problems and daily stresses. Their work saves lives and saves families from experiencing the tragedy of losing a loved one in such a shocking way.


Please do what you can to support my cause; it will be a great motivation for me while I try and regain the passion I once had for long distance running and also provide much needed support to a foundation that does such incredible work


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

If U Care Share Foundation

If U Care Share Foundation works to prevent suicide, support those who have lost loved ones and provide training to improve emotional and mental health.


The North East has the highest rate of suicide in the country and suicide continues to be the biggest killer of men under 50 and young people. We want to change that!


We offer a range of services to help people who have been affected by suicide, as well as working with young people in schools to promote positive emotional and mental health.


We can only continue to do our vital work with the support of people who go that extra mile to fundraise for us. Every penny really does count!

Registered Charity Number: 1142001.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
