Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I met Lewis at the finish line of my very first Ironman event in 2016. It was June and poured rain of biblical proportions throughout. However Lewis was such a happy and excited young man to see me that all the effort and discomfort immediately dissipated. I went on to support him further and he was the proud recipient a Iron kids t shirt and an Ironman medal donated by IronmanUK and which I had engraved for him.
Despite childhood leukaemia having a pretty good prognosis overall, Lewis sadly had one of the rarest types which proved difficult to treat and he died last year, aged just 8.
The family have set up a charity in his name and you can read more at the Team Lewis website. Advances in immunotherapy mean it won't be long before a drug will be available to treat other children like Lewis hence that is why research is so important. I am happy to raise funds for the charity at Ironman Spain on October 7th, and in doing so, missing out on a charity banquet on October 6th, being held in his memory in the UK.
