I'm doing a short triathlon on 13 August 2016 for Bowel and Cancer Research because I want to raise money in memory of Rob Longhurst.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

After years of being very unfit and the mention of statins when I had my last health check, I decided it was time to do something about it. I've wanted to do a triathlon for years - and have now found a very short one that is feasible for someone who is as unfit as me. It is my fitness goal for 2016 to finish 200m swim, 4km bike & 2 km run and to that end I'm exercising three times a week.

In December 2014, my good friend Rob Longhurst left us far too soon as a result of bowel cancer. Therefore it makes sense to me to combine these two facts and raise money for Bowel & Cancer Research whilst following my fitness goal.
