Hi everyone

 

It’s that time of year again! I can’t quite believe how much has happened over the last 12 months and a large part of that was the fantastic sum of money that we managed to raise last year. 

As you probably know I've been taking part in triathlons over the past couple of years as a way of keeping fit for my racing. I’m back again this year to compete in the London Triathlon and to raise money for a charity that is very close to my heart.

I'm a Patron of the Make A Wish Foundation and have had the pleasure of meeting lots of kids who are supported by the charity at our tests and races. Make A Wish grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses and it is a real privilege to be involved with them. The kids are so inspirational and hopefully we can raise enough money to fulfil as many of their dreams as possible.

The London Triathlon takes place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th August with almost 11,000 competitors making it the largest Triathlon in the world!

 The race covers a 1500m swim, 40km bike ride and a 10km run. Last year I managed to finish 2 in my age category which I was very happy with. I guess that kind of means I need to finish 1 this year?! Nothing like putting pressure on myself!

Having raised almost £20,000 last year I knew we would have to dig deep to beat that so a lot is going into this year’s event. I’ve even managed to convince Vernon Kay to take part who, having said he was just going to run around with a bucket next to me, is now taking it very seriously!  

There may well be a couple of other team members you might all recognise so keep checking back for updates on that. 

It’s an even bigger task this year due to the very high benchmark we set ourselves last time, so please, please dig into your pockets and sponsor me. 

Your money will be going to a very worthy cause and helping to make dreams come true for some very poorly children.

Thanks very much for any support that you can give...
