Story

When I was 16 I did a Triathlon at school. That was the last time I took part in a sporting competition and I was completely awful at it. I have done no training to speak of since then. I vowed to myself I would never, EVER put myself through anything like it ever again. And yet... 

On Saturday 4th June 2011 I will swim, bike and run 16km in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Lukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Any money that you can donate to either of these causes would be very much appreciated. I am competing in memory of Sue Thompson and Laura Hodnett, two wonderful women who lived every day they were given with joy and humour. We miss them both greatly and I want to help fight the diseases that claimed Sue and Laura too soon.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer.

Please dig deep... Oh, and do come along and watch. The Blenheim Triathlon is a brilliant day out.
