Story

Keith Jenns & Chris Graham 7/7/7 Challenge. Seven triathlons. Seven days. Seven continents.
Money raised for Alzheimer’s Research and the Army Benevolent Fund. Patron Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

As soon as we have the funding, Chris Graham (a former Commando suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s) and I will be undertaking this endurance challenge in aid of two incredible causes.
As a former solider myself, I know about endurance but since my father and uncle have been diagnosed with dementia, I’ve witnessed firsthand how this horrible disease challenges a family.

Chris Graham wrote about his recent major challenge in his book Five Minutes of Amazing. With the disease already affecting him, he cycled 16,000 miles solo around North America and raised more than £50,000 for Alzheimer’s Research.
Recently, I joined him in his latest challenge - a cycle ride from John O’Groats to Land's End for the same cause. I have just completed the Tour Transalp 2017, biking more than 800 kms through the Alps with 19000 m of climbing, to raise even more money.

Once everything is in place for the 7/7/7, we will follow in the footsteps of Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Dr Mike Stroud who, in 2003, completed the 7/7/7 in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
Their marathons began in Patagonia and took them to the Falkland Islands, Sydney, Singapore, London, Cairo and New York.

Our aim is to replicate their incredible achievement with recognised distances to raise awareness and fund research into Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Sir Ran has kindly agreed to be our patron for the event.

We hope to get as much media and television exposure as possible and private sponsorship coupled with public support to fund flights, equipment and back-up support.
The Sun newspaper is already fully behind us.

Please donate what you can or offer to sponsor us so that we can achieve this once-in-a-lifetime challenge and help fund research.
Together, we can beat dementia.
