Blubberman to Ironman in aid of DREAMFLIGHT


As many of you are aware I completed (slowly) The London Triathlon in aid of DREAMFLIGHT in August 09. Thanks to the huge generosity of many here at FT I raised over £3500 to help send a child on a holiday of a lifetime.


I am now back again asking for more support for my 2010 fundraising effort, I will be doing another triathlon but this time in St George, Utah. USA. I am going to be upping the game from an Olympic distance of Swim 1500m Cycle 40km run 10km to a full Ironman distance event of Swim 2.4 miles, Cycle 112 miles run 26.2miles (3.86km, 180.25km,42.195km). The event starts at 7am and the cutoff tome is midnight. I hope to get it done in 14 hours.




For those that don’t know about DREAMFLIGHT or the great work they do please take a moment to visit
