Rhydian set his sights high with a fundraising goal of $25,000.

Execution

Rhydian had a supportive team especially his parents, that pushed his fundraising project through their own networks, work colleagues and through the athletic community. The use of social media and email communication was important in spreading the word about the project and getting donations.
