My story

[p][b]It’s now or never. The date has been set.[/b][/p][p]In August 2019, I will be attempting to complete the ultimate challenge: [b]The ARCH TO ARC.[/b][/p][p]1. [b]RUN[/b] 87 miles from Marble Arch, London to Dover, then...[/p][p]2. [b]SWIM[/b] across the English Channel and lastly...[/p][p]3. [b]CYCLE[/b] 181 miles from Calais to the Arc de Triomphe, Paris.[/p][p] [/p][p][b]THE TARGET? To complete this within 64 hours, and become the [u]World Record Holder.[/u][/b][/p][p][br][/p][p]In 2016, I successfully swam the English Channel for Parkinson’s UK. This terrible disease is a challenge my dad has to face every day. Why a new challenge now? Over the last 3 to 4 years my dad has had to take on an even bigger test in life, Lewy body dementia.[/p][p] [/p][p]For the man who taught me [u]courage[/u], [u]confidence[/u] and inspired me to [u]believe[/u] in myself to swim the English Channel, this one’s not only for you dad, but for my Mum and my two sisters, Emma and Katy, who care for you every day.[/p][p] [/p][p]Spread the word, share my page and come and join me on a training session or 2 (available to organise through the Strava app).[/p][p] [/p][p][b]Like me on [/b][url=https://www.facebook.com/chrisleekchannelchallenge/][b]Facebook [/b][/url][b]at[/b] [url=https://www.facebook.com/chrisleekchannelchallenge/]https://www.facebook.com/chrisleekchannelchallenge/[/url][/p][p][b]Follow me on [/b][url=https://www.instagram.com/chris.leek_/][b]Instagram [/b][/url][b]at[/b] [url=https://www.instagram.com/chris.leek_/]https://www.instagram.com/chris.leek_/[/url][/p]
