The weekend of Saturday 23rd April 2016 will see 22 UK travellers descending on the Algarve and joining up with our Portugese friends to compete in the Praia da Luz Sprint Triathlon. This will be done by individuals and also relay teams who must swim 750mtrs in the Atlantic Ocean, cycle 20km and run 5km !!
We are doing this to raise funds for Alder Hey Childrens Charity. This hospital is very close to our hearts as they have provided over 2 years of help & support through major surgeries for Lewis Connett, who was born with a rare genetic disorder called Apert Syndrome.
Apert syndrome affects 1 in 65,000 children and is caused by a mutant gene during pregnancy. This causes the under development of the skull bones, narrowing of airways, and fused fingers and toes prior to birth. Lewis already has had several major operations including skull reconstruction and hand surgeries. His operations will continue well into his teen years.
Alder Hey is known as "The Land of Remarkable People" but what makes the hospital truly remarkable is the dedication, support and care that each and every member of staff provides 24 hours a day to all of their patients and families.
