Dear Colleagues, Family and Friends,
In 2010 we took up running and decided to complete the Edinburgh Marathon, in 2011 we took up cycling and achieved a 90 mile ride, for 2012 we have taken up swimming and have decided to combine all three sports into a Triple Challenge.
We are not asking you to sponsor us for the completion of a single event, or even a double event but in fact we would like your support to complete three events in 2012:
1) 1st April – Reading Half Marathon (13.1 miles run)
2) 27th May – Edinburgh Half Marathon (13.1 miles run)
3) 8th July – Cowman 70.3 Ironman (1.2 miles swim, 56 miles cycle, 13.1 miles run)
We have been inspired by a group of people who, from having no background in sports and having lost their limbs fighting to protect our freedom and trying to help others achieve theirs, they then returned home to face the challenges of life only to throw themselves into a full Ironman (2.4 miles swim, 112 mile cycle and 26.2 miles run).
Although we are not ready for that ultimate challenge this year, we hope you agree that the challenge we have set ourselves and for whom we have decided to do it for should be worth some sponsorship.
We therefore ask if you can dig deep for a worthy cause and a challenging 2012,
Thanking you in advance,
Lorraine and Tony
