Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
We are raising money for the NCCU (Neuro Critical Care Unit) at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, in honour of our lovely friend Lou who received excellent care there before she sadly passed away on 29th January 2013.
Lou was an inspiration to so many of us in so many different ways, and even though she is no longer here with us in person she continues to inspire us every single day. And so the year of the yes was born. A positive outlook on life - the encouragement to try new things, to keep saying yes and to spend as much time with our loved ones as possible. Find out more here.
In the spirit of Lou and the year of the yes, Christina and I wanted to do something to raise lots of money in her memory.
As part of this, we will be running a 'fun' triathlon in Cheshire on 1st June 2014.
This is no mean feat. Christina and I are probably the least sporty people you will ever meet. But we are doing this because we know that Lou would find it utterly hilarious. And because she would have been our biggest supporter. This is just a very small way that we can honour an incredible friend. You can find full details about our trialthlon challenge here.
Since sharing the challenge, Steph has also joined us in our triathlon fundraising quest, and Chris and Miles will be taking part in other fundraising activities too (see below). So if you are here to sponsor them, you have come to the right place!
There are a few other activities that will be happening in the lead-up to the triathlon and I will list these and the participants below so that you know what we are up to and can join in if you fancy it.
But above all we ask you to kindly support us by donating in memory of our girl.
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.
So please dig deep and donate now.

This page is also open to anyone that would like to raise money in Lou's honour - I can add other events to the list with the relevant names of participants and add details into the blurb above (they don't have to be sporting events - I am sure that Lou would be particularly approving of any that don't involve exercise).
