My story

[p]The Hesters are about to head to the north-west to take part in the IronKids and IronMan events.[/p][p]On Saturday 14th July, Will (aged 6 - in his second IronKids race) and Bea (aged 9 - in her third) are undertaking the IronKids running event - as part of some 2,500 competitors.[/p][p]On Sunday 15th July, Jim will undertake the Ironman for the third time. This triathlon consists of a 3.8km swim, followed by a 180km bike ride and finally followed by a 42.2 km run (a marathon). [/p][p]This year they are fundraising for The Royal Marines Charity - Jim having served in the marines for 10 years (when he was slightly younger and more able to endure long-distance events).[/p][p]The Charity has a straightforward vision:[/p][p]"[b]Royal Marines and their families supported through life[/b]."[/p][p]They say:[/p][p]"[b]We are the Royal Marines’ own Charity and are uniquely placed to understand, respond and react, enabling Marines and their families to overcome their challenges including life changing injury, life limiting illness, mental disability, transition to civilian life and even poverty. We can target your support across every need to ensure no one is left behind.[/b]"[/p][p][br][/p]
