Over the last two years I have witnessed the suffering and passing of both my Nan & Granddad due to this terrible disease. For those that know me, they know that calling them Nan & Granddad doesn't do them justice, as for most of my life they brought me up. I am extremely grateful for everything they have given me. For taking on the job of being my 'Mum & Dad'.
As a way of remembering them and saying thank you for all the sacrifices they made, I will be undertaking 12-months of extreme(ish) crazy(ish) challenges. My aim is to raise as much money as possible to help the continued research and treatment of Dementia. Over the next 12-months I will be undertaking:
January: Tough Guy (https://www.toughguy.co.uk/)
February: The Beast
March: The Battle of Lansdown (http://www.battleoflansdown.com/)
April: My Jiu-Jitsu Challenge - 1000 throws in 5 Hours
May: Tough Mudder 5k & 100km Canoe trip in Scotland (ok, I admit, I love doing this one! But we did nearly drown one year #Grandtully)
June: Rough Runner - 15k
July: Climbing Ben Nevis
August; My 6 year old son will be climbing Snowdon (with me!)
September: Tough Mudder Full
October: Hellrunner: Hell up North
November: Hellrunner: Nightfall - The aim is to do 20 miles through the day and night (12noon to 8pm) through swamp, forest, hill, river, obstacles and mud (and the cold of winter!)
December: My Black Belt Grading (hopefully!)
Followed by a year of therapy and physio!!
Any donation will be greatly appreciated - thank you
