This weekend has started a few months of crazy fundraising for Katie, we are so proud and thrilled that we have such support for the Foundation, ultimately leading to more money towards Katie’s pioneering database that will help so many people going through cancer treatment.
On Saturday the Reid family were en masse, showing London that Triathlons are not only for the elite, but for those with dogged determination and a stubborn love for a great cause. Claire, Helen, Sophie and Will ran the Vitality Sprint Triathlon in London’s Hyde Park. A grand total of a 750m swim, 22.5km bike ride followed by a lovely 5km run they completed it and I believe are still smiling and hopefully still celebrating their success.
Please do help them reach their target!
Also this weekend, Sam Sharrock has once again taken things to the Sharrock extreme! Their lovely family have always been amazing supporters of us, and having crossed Iceland in 2013, Sam, along with his Dad, are taking on an ultra-marathon crossing the Gobi desert starting this weekend.
He will tackle 250 kilometers of terrain in eastern Xinjiang Province of China over 7 days. An attempt that seems unfathomable to a lot of us!
Please help him to reach his fundraising target!
Chris, also known as Irvs, is a Yorkshire man on a mission. For a long time he has taken part in various Ironman competitions and triathlons – his fitness levels are enviable. But he has always done these as his own personal challenges. This time, he has decided that he is going to do one for charity and we are so lucky that he has chosen the KCF to support.
Please dig deep and donate!
You will also be happy to see our updated total of over £140,000. It is truly amazing and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
