My story

[p][span=color: #0000ff;][lt]span style="background-color: #ffff00;"[gt]I DID IT!  58 HOURS AND 21 MINUTES!  2ND PLACE.  THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT![/span][lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;]In 2015 I am raising vital cash for three causes.  The three Charities are Birmingham Children’s Hospital (for the treatment and research into child brain tumors), the Taunton Opportunity Group – TOG (pre-school for children with special needs and disabilities) and the Child Bereavement Charity.  All three have touched my heart for various reasons. [/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;]A friend has a niece called ‘Poppy’ who has battled with a brain tumor since she was 14 months old.  She is continually treated by Birmingham Children’s Hospital and because of the outstanding work they do she is now 12 and still with us today.  Both my daughter and my friends son both have special medical needs and have been privileged enough to spend time developing at TOG.  And finally my wife lost her brother when he had just turned 18 years old following a bike accident.  This was many years ago and at the time they didn’t have any help or support to assist them coming to terms with their loss and grief.  Today the Child Bereavement Charity exists to do just this.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;] [/span][url=http://www.bch.org.uk/][span=color: #0000ff;]http://www.bch.org.uk/[/span][/url][span=color: #0000ff;] [/span][url=http://www.poppyfieldsappeal.co.uk/][span=color: #0000ff;]http://www.poppyfieldsappeal.co.uk/[/span][/url][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;] [/span][url=http://www.childbereavementuk.org/][span=color: #0000ff;]http://www.childbereavementuk.org/[/span][/url][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;] [/span][url=http://www.tauntonopportunitygroup.org.uk/][span=color: #0000ff;]http://www.tauntonopportunitygroup.org.uk/[/span][/url][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;]I will aim to complete a Triple Ironman in Wales called the Brutal Triple Iron Triathlon.  This event is set in the heart of The Snowdonia National Park.  The event is a continuous Triple Ironman event with no sleep and the cut off for it is 64 hours.  I will swim 7.2 miles in Lake Pardarn in waters around 12 degrees in temperature, Cycle 350 miles around the foothills of Mount Snowdon with over 32000 foot of climbing and then an 80 mile trail run with the first 10 miles up to the summit of Snowdon and back down.  Are you feeling tired yet?  I am…….[/span][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;]I will swim, cycle and run thousands of miles over the coming year.  I will be competing in some events to build up to this.
