My story

[p]I am proud (and a little bit daunted) to be joining 11 others in the second Tower to Tower Challenge in aid of the fantastic Donna Louise Childrens Hospice and its new Young Adults Hospice. [/p][p]The challenge has not been done before. It comprises an 82 hour, 324 mile, self propelled journey from Paris to London. We start with a 149 mile cycle from Paris to Le Havre (18 hours max), we then move straight into a 115 mile row from Le Havre to Brighton (40 hours) followed immediately by a 60 mile cross country trek from Brighton to London (24 hours). [/p][p]The challenge is deliberately intense and will cause severe sleep deprivation. This is to highlight the plight of the parents of many of the children for whom total exhaustion is just the way life is.[/p][p]I was proud to take part in the original Tower to Tower 450 mile row from London to Paris. Hundreds of individual donations combined to over £300k. [/p][p]Any support you give will be greatly and genuinely appreciated. More importantly, it will help make a lasting difference to the lives of people who don't deserve what life has thrown at them.[/p][p]Thank you[/p][p] [/p]
