Team story

[p]After the passing of our Mum, Andrew, as only he can, came up with the concept of "Our Big Year"[/p][p]This involves completing no less than 6 challenges this year. More recently Charlotte (Vicky’s daughter) also has decided to get involved by chopping her very long hair off! The events list looks like this:[/p][p]Charlottes big hair cut - done[/p][p]Great North Swim - done[/p][p]Race to the Kings (ultramarathon - 86km) - done[/p][p]Race to the Stones (ultramarathon - 50km) - done[/p][p]Trearddur Bay Swimming sports Sea Swim - done[/p][p]Sandman Triathlon - done[/p][p]RNLI Portsmouth 10k - done[/p][p]All the events have significance to Mum from before and during her illness, swimming was a hobby she loved, walking with her dogs gave her peace and the swimming sports in a location she called her second home. The triathlon is also in North Wales in one of her favourite spots and the RNLI race is in Portsmouth where she spent a lot of time with Vicky and the family. [/p][p]We are raising money for Cure Leukaemia and The Primrose Hospice who helped support Mum throughout her illness.[/p][p]Thank you for support, we appreciate ever penny. If you wish to join us for any of the events you are welcome and we would love to welcome you to team "Touch of Turquoise".[/p][p]Andrew & Vicky[/p][p][br][/p]
