Cancer Fund for Children

Charity Registration No. NIC100532



I really appreciate you taking time out to read what I am planning to do this year and the great cause I am raising money for.

I have decided to complete the Outlaw Triathlon which an Ironman Distance Triathlon.  Details are at

Great video of the Outlaw event on there.

For those of you who aren't aware of the Ironman Triathlon it consists of a

  • 2.4 mile open water swim
  • 112 mile road cycle and
  • a 26.2 mile run to finish

Yes, that's a marathon at the end, and I have 17 hours to complete the whole event! (though I would like to do it under 14!)

When I tell people, the first thing they usuallt say is, "are you mad!", followed a shake of the head!  I think I am a little crazy attempting it but sure...I don't want a life of "If only I had tried that..."

In training for this event I have decided to raise money for Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children.  This is a local charity which supports families whose children have cancer and also supports children if one of their family members has cancer.  Each week in Northern Ireland 3 children are diagnosed with cancer.

NICFC have opened Daisy Lodge, a respite and care centre for families in Newcastle.  They need a play area built and I want to raise £30,000 to build this.  Please support me in this

NICFC's website is at

I plan to use the updates here to tell a little more of my story and progress. 

I appreciate your support and encouragement
