Claire Hopkins is planning to do the  WEST WIGHT TRIATHLON on Sunday September 30th 2012.


It is a Pool Swim 600m - Bike 35km - Run 7.5km


Claire plans to do the swim and the run while her brother Kieran Hopkins does the cycle.

Sophie Rolf is a happy go lucky, always smiling, little bundle of joy (most of the time!).

In June 2012, 2 months before her 5th birthday, she was diagnosed with a supratentorial high grade glioma, bilateral thalamic tumour.

It is early days, and Sophie’s family are still discussing the prognosis with Doctors and seeking further opinions on treatment options.

We have set up ‘KissyPuppy’ kindly supported by Brainstrust, to create a mechanism for friends and family to fund raise for Sophie.

The money raised will be used to support Sophie’s journey through this. It may be used to fund travelling to and from appointments on the mainland, any equipment needed, it may be used for treatment not funded through the NHS or just to ‘Keep Sophie Happy’ by paying for things she likes to do.

We chose the name ‘KissyPuppy’ as this a word Sophie uses for a very special sort of cuddle and kiss reserved only for her big brother Jack.
