Weʼre raising £500 to Rocking Ur Teens
- London, United Kingdom
- Children and youth
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
70.3 miles. 1.2miles front crawl, 56 miles on the bike, and 13.1 miles “running”. I’d far rather swap the run and the swim distances, but then where would the challenge be?! ;-)
In May 2018 I will be lining up for the start of the Outlaw Half Iron-man in Nottingham, and I would like to use this as an opportunity to raise funds for Rocking Ur Teens, a community interest company who bring teenagers together to create personal and social change, equip them to enjoy their teens and to use these valuable years to catapult them to future career success.
My own teenage years taught me how to excel academically, but it’s not until recently that I have really felt well equipped to excel at life. The community of athletes and loafers that I have found through my gradual transition into triathlon over the past 3 years has played a huge part in that learning and development.
Whether you’re interested in one, two, or three of the triathlon disciplines, I cannot encourage you enough to give it a tri and see where it leads. From the open water swimmers on riverbanks and at lakes throughout the UK, to local running clubs, cycling groups and triathlon clubs, I guarantee you will come across some of the most generous spirited and supportive people you will ever meet.
In the meantime, please give generously to support our future leaders, change agents, (and maybe even triathletes?!) to rock their teens. And, less importantly, to give me a reason to survive the HALF MARATHON at the end of my race!!
