Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page....again!
So after completing various charity events over the last couple of years, sustaining some pretty painful injuries and already raising over £15,000 courtesey of some very generous friends, family and work colleauges, Ive decided to really lay down a challenge and that is to raise £50,000 for a charity that is very close to my heart.
No matter how long it takes, I will happily put my body through whatever is thrown at it in order to raise the money that is required to support truly ground breaking research in an area that will have a direct and positive impact on my family.
As an update for this years events, its actually been a relatively quiet one due to the birth of my second baby boy Naoh so rather than jumping in the pool at 5am, I can be found knee deep in nappies however things are now ramping up. When I completed my last IRONMAN event, I said “to take a brick and smash it on my head if I ever talk about doing an IRONMAN again”…well, lets just say I hope there are no lose bricks around!
This is now my 4th year into this journey to raise £50k and I have so far competed in the following:
Over 20 triathalons
Various Cycle races leading to qualification to represent Great Britain at World Cycling Championships
The Mega Avalanche X3
IRONMAN UK 70.3
Various Endurance based MTB events
I will continue to confirm my list of events via the update section of this page:
The St Mark's hopsital foundation is the only charity that supports the work of St Marks Hospital in Harrow. Set up to fund what the NHS can not, the money that is raised from the general public goes to ensure vital research, education and training goes ahead each year, keeping St Marks at the very pinnace of success.
I personally have a debt of gratitude to a person that I can simply describe as my hero and a prime example of what a medical professional should be like, Dr Simon Gabe. Dr Gabe is part of a team of physicians, surgeons and nurses that take the time to understand that hospital is a scary place to be for most people and as a result, go out of their way to make sure the experience is as good as it can be under the circumstances.
As this charity has so much personal meaning to myself and my family, I would be really grateful if you can sponsor me and help me raise as much as I possibly can for such a worthy cause..Even if its only £1, it all goes towards my target.
