My story

[p]A 2.4 mile swim in the sea off Tenby, then a 112 mile cycle through the South Wales hills and valleys followed by a marathon through the streets of Tenby. WHY OH WHY?? For the M-dot tattoo - a bit! For bragging rights the rest of my life - yes! To shout 'I am an Ironman' in my best mock Robert Downey Jr accent - of course. To push myself to a feat of physical endurance unlike anything I've done before - erm a bit! To raise much needed funds for a superb charity which has helped my daughter and us as a family since her birth - absolutely. Lollipop were one of the first charities who supported us when Freya was born profoundly deaf in 2006. As a York based charity we were able to easily attend sessions and their support through the early months and years of squealing hearing aids to the operations for cochlear implants and to Freya's first years in a mainstream school have all been invaluable. As a now confident, resilient, fiercely determined 15 year old who makes us proud each and every day, she is almost oblivious to any impairment and without question some of that is due to Lollipop. Their work locally and throughout North Yorkshire to support deaf children, young people and their families whatever their degree of deafness is often invaluable. They have now extended their support to deaf adults and offer a mentoring scheme to support deaf children and young people to develop skills for the future. Your support, however small, would be a wonderful help. The more I raise the more I know I will be determined to train every day and get to a position on that start line on Sunday 11th September 2022, hearing the Welsh National Anthem and feel I can achieve this huge goal. Thank you. [/p][p][url=https://www.ironman.com/im-wales]IRONMAN Wales - Anything is Possible[/url][/p]
