Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Long overdue an update on here. It’s early December and we are 11 challenges in. Completed this year are;
-length of medway canoe trip
-wheel wod adaptive crossfit games
They’ve all tested me in different ways! They’ve all pushed me close to my limit and I’m some cases they’ve shown me I don’t know where my limit is as I’ve gone further than I thought was possible. None have been easy!!
All that is left now is the 24 hour team rope climb! The goal is Everest height climbed in that time! I’m very nervous, wondering how my body will hold up to that level of abuse and what sort of condition my hands will end up in! Time will tell!
Original info below
Some of you will know that in 2010 I suffered a 35ft fall which broke my ankle, my wrist and damaged my spine in two places leaving me with no feeling or movement from the waist down!
After a miraculous level of recovery (including an elective amputation of the damaged ankle), involving a lot of grit, determination, hard work, prayer and emotion, I’m back on my feet (or foot) - all be it with a spine bolted together with titanium and pretty reduced sensation in the legs!
From very early on, even when we never thought I would walk I knew I would push myself to live my best life and to be an active person!
As a result, this year I want to push myself and see just what I can achieve and what my limits are - both physical and psychological! I want to prove that whatever happens you can achieve amazing things...
This year, I coined this Idea of 12 challenges in 12 months! In 2019 I’m going to do 12 challenges, any of which could, in there own rights be seen as a big goal for a year.
Well underway is my 300x300 challenge (head to bolted together blogs to find out more). I’m doing the Tunbridge Wells half marathon in Feb. I’m signed up for 2 OCR’s (obstacle course races), I’m doing the turf games in June, and a team Everest height rope climb towards the end of the year.
I’m also keen to achieve an open water swim and a triathlon too! As you can see, there are a couple of gaps still so send your ideas my way for what can fill them! You’ll also notice I’ve not commuted dates to all these things (some are fixed, some are not) as I still have every intention of climbing like a machine at the GB team selection in March and hopefully making the team - as a result I may have a international comb season to juggle too! I’ve got some incredible friends who are getting involved in this with me, signing up to some of the team events with me and keeping me accountable so big thanks to them! Also massive thanks to my beautiful, and long suffering wife for putting up with my madness!
Please think about digging deep folks! It could literally change and save people’s lives!! And I’m not taking this lightly, every challenge I’ve signed up to so far genuinely SCARES me!! A LOT.
Also, please share this far and wide!! The more people who see this the better!! If 20000 people see it and half of them sponsor a £1 I hit my target... lets smash that target out the window this year!!
