The Christie

We fund life-changing and life-saving work to support cancer patients at The Christie

Story

For those of you that don't know, my name is Andy Eastwood and I will be completing 14 charity events in 2014. Raising money for The Christie in conjunction with Chadderton Park Sports Club.

First of all I would like to thank you for visiting my JustGiving sponsorship page.

Here is a little background as to why I’m doing this:

 

On New Year’s Eve before I was getting ready to sort the ‘quiff’ for a night of celebration bringing in 2014 I was thinking I need to enter the BUPA Greater Manchester 10K run before I forget. Whilst doing this it got me thinking what other events I could participate in. I’d already been ‘told’ by my brother that I would be taking part in this year’s Tough Mudder because if he could complete it, I sure as damn could!

 

I checked the Christie fundraising page and came across a whole range of different fund raising sporting events for 2014. Before I knew I’d added bike rides, outdoor swims and even a triathlon to my bucket list!

 

With the year being ‘2014’ I decided rather crazily that I would attempt 14 charity events in the calendar year.

 

Everyone unfortunately knows of someone that has been affected by this cruel disease and I would like to make the difference by completing all these events to raise much needed funds to help beat cancer. The Christie have kindly offered me free places in several of the events on the guarantee that I raise £1000 sponsorship over the year from kind people like yourselves.
