Team story

[p]In 490 BC, the Athenian messenger Pheidippides was sent from the battlefield at Marathon to take the news of the defeat of the invading Persian army to the people of Athens. He ran the 26 miles without stopping, delivered the happy news, collapsed and died. This final act has persistently failed to convince people that running 26 miles in one go isn’t a great idea. I am largely convinced butI’ll be dragging my 100kgs around London on 22nd April all the same. At the same time, out in the shires, Chris Lewis will be in his garden on his rowing machine smashing through the virtual water to row 26 miles.[/p][p]Clearly, we are not doing this for our benefit. Last year, the Cascaid Charity initiative raised a staggering £2.3m for Cancer Research UK, an effort that many of you contributed to. In 2018, Cascaid is fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. On average, 618 seriously ill children are admitted to GOSH every single day. The charity funds research into the the development of new treatments, pays for vital new equipment and contributes to the rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital. [/p]
