Story

For those who know me and have seen my dancing will know that this is not a dance competition!

The Fan Dance is a gruelling 24km SAS Selection test march staged over Pen y Fan. The infamous march is the world’s oldest Special Forces test and is the first significant indicator of whether a candidate has the physical and mental aptitude to complete the legendary selection course.

Founded, organised and managed by veteran SAS & SBS soldiers, the Fan Dance ethos is one of integrity and the unrelenting pursuit of excellence.

Staged across the spectacular scenery of the Brecon Beacons, the Fan Dance remains a formidable challenge that demands unwavering respect for tradition and authenticity.

On the 6th of April 2019, in association with Force Fitness, I will be taking on this challenge in aid of Help Bristol's Homeless (HBH). The aim is to help raise £30,000 that can be used to convert two shipping containers into living accommodation.

I have been working with HBH for almost two years, and as most of you are aware of the work they are doing is something that is close to my heart.

After being homeless myself, I understand how difficult it can be to find the right help and support. HBH is different from other charities as their ethos is that housing must come first. Through working with HBH I have seen how this approach works, and I've witnessed people turn their lives around once they have the stable foundation that HBH is offering.

I will be one of many taking on this extraordinary challenge, and I am asking my friends and family to sponsor me so that together we can raise £200 towards the HBH target.

I'm not one to shy away from a challenge; however, I know that this separates the wheat from the chaff and will no doubt be the greatest challenge of my life.

Please join me on this life-changing experience for a life-changing cause by donating today.

Thank you for your support, and in the words of Jasper Thompson founder of Help Bristol's Homeless - Together, we can make a difference!

    I've got to be honest, I've been a bit lazy this past week with my training. With that said, I did ramp it up a gear today by increased my carry load to 15 kg. It's becoming a real pleasure for me, and I'm going to take up hiking/mountaineering as a full-time hobby!

    The wind and rain was no match for me today as I marched through Ashton Court. If funny because despite planning my route yesterday I still managed to get lost! I had planned out an 8 mile and ended just doing just shy of 6. Regardless of that little mishap, I'm pleased with what I did today as I increased my carry weight to 12kg and also had 1kg ankle weights. I now have a nice roasted dinner in the oven and boy am I ready for it!!

    I've been out on a load bearing 10 Kg march today, and I'm chuffed with my progress. I did 7.74 mi in 1 hour 59. With just over four weeks of training to go, at my current pace, I should complete the Fan Dance in around four hours!
