    My name is Dexter Holmes, I am 10 years old, this summer I will be completing 'Dexters Summer Challenge'.

    I am raising money to share between two charities.

    CDH UK (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia) is a charity very close to my families hearts. I would like to raise money to help them to continue to support families affected by CDH.

    Young Lives Vs Cancer is a charity that supports children, young people and their families when they are diagnosed with cancer. I would like to raise money to help Young Lives Vs Cancer to continue their work.

    I am not athletic or fit, I don't like the way my heart racing makes me feel but I know that feeling is much easier to manage compared with the feelings of the children involved in both of these charities. I will be completing three different tasks in my local area of North Wales.

    Task 1 - Walk Moel Famau twice in one day!

    Task 2 - Cycle along the North Wales cycle route from Prestatyn to Llandudno.

    Task 3 - Swim the length of Llyn Tegid (5.95km) at a local swimming baths - I will be completing this task over a number of weeks through the summer. It works out as 238 lengths!

    I hope you will support me in my venture to raise money for these two charities and I look forward to keeping you updated - wish me luck!

      Just a quick update to say the plan is still on for Dexter to complete his final section of his summer challenge tomorrow. We hope to set off from prestatyn about 10.30 but no idea on an ETA at Llandudno because he has never cycled this far!! We will be congregating around the prom by the roundabout just before the pier for anyone that would like to join us in celebrating Dexter's huge success. Can I just take this time to thank every single person who's sponsored Dexter, encouraged him, shown support. Honestly, thank you so much!! 🚶‍♂️🏊🚲
