Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be cycling, rowing, running and walking in an attempt to clock up 2021 miles by the end of 2021. It is the 30th anniversary of the CHSW, last year was a tough one and the show must go on.

Since losing Jess in January 2017, after her long battle with leukaemia, our family have done what we can to support the charities that made a difference to us and who continue to support families in amazing ways. The CHSW still support us as a bereaved family and it is a milestone year for them, hence the year long challenge.

In June a team of us will be taking part in Endure24 - that's 24 hours of running a 5 mile trail route, whilst camping near a forest in Wasing (nr Reading) - in previous years I have managed 4 / 5 laps.

In July I have signed up to take part in their Ride for Precious Lives event - 205 miles in 3 days cycling between their three Hospice's in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.

There will be other events throughout the year to keep me motivated and ensure I hit the overall milage goal. If anyone wants to join me, or invite me to join them, please do reach out (COVID rules permitting) as it will be good to mix things up a bit otherwise I'm going to be putting grooves into the roads near me!

This charity is very well established and does such a great job supporting families that have children with life-limiting illnesses. They give respite care, sibling support and much, much more. All of this costs money and historically they didn't get support from the government and must raise the necessary funds to keep this high level of support available to those that need it the most.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
