Dryanuary is over and I have now been on the bandwagon for 37 days and counting. So far so good, although as everyone likes to tell me January is the easy month so now, as everyone’s wheels start to fall off, the real test of abstinense begins.
In just one month we have raised a total of £7,019.05. I have no other way of describing this other than AMAZING, so thank you to all those who have donated or made a pledge.
I have also decided to add another event to make things a bit more challenging. I am entering the Rat Race Coast to Coast Challenge in September 2017. I will be Running, Riding and Kayaking 105 miles across the Scottish Highlands.
Here are some stats on the race:
- 12 AVERAGE HOURS TAKEN TO COMPLETE ONE-DAY CHALLENGE 2016
- 105 TOTAL NUMBER OF MILES FROM COAST TO COAST
- 14 AVERAGE HOURS TAKEN TO COMPLETE TWO-DAY CHALLENGE 2016
- 10840 TOTAL ASCENT IN FT
This is going to be a challenge given I am no cyclist (I don’t even have a bike) and in my 33 years I have not kayaked more than a mile.
And in case anyone has forgotten I am doing all of this, in memory of my father, to raise money for Sobell House Hospice Charity, an Oxford based palliative care hospice who looked after him so well and Cancer Research UK, a cancer research and awareness charity in the UK.
We have still got some way to get to the £20,000 target so please make a pledge (payable in January 2018 subject to successful completion) by email to
donate now HERE.
