Story

Tri-ing for Eva

Eva is a wonderful 4 year old with bright eyes and infectious smile, which belies her disability. Eva was born with Rett Syndrome, a life limiting and debilitating syndrome that sees her requiring constant care and supervision. Her parents and grandparents do all they can to provide for her, but funding the specialist treatments and therapies is not cheap.

Rett Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder found only in females. Affecting 1 in 10,000, It affects brain development and causes severe mental and physical disability from early childhood.

I decided to do my bit for this loving and caring family who have been friends of mine for many years. This spring I will compete in a triathlon event and hopefully raise money to help fund some of the therapies that help Eva get the most from life.

You can follow my training and other adventures at my blog page. I hope you can find it in yourself to help this little girl, her dedicated family and friends, who work hard to give her the best life they can.

THANK YOU.

    I'm sorry to say the triathlon isn't going to happen. However I have been instrumental in raising over £3000 to help Eva and her family. Part of that money has gone to pay for a trip to Disneyland Paris to create memories for them all to cherish. As a result of not completing the challenge, I am willing to return all donations, or pass the money on to Eva's family as some spending money for their trip. Contact me directly benjaxon63@gmail.com I failed in this endeavour, but I am pleased to have managed to support the family in other ways.

    Please feel free to visit www.earthwindandtyres.com to read my blog about training for this event. The immediate update is that I was hospitalised after a fall at work and will almost certainly have to postpone the event as I have a strained ligaments in my ankle.
