My father died of cancer on 30th May 2015. I wanted to do something significant in his memory and whilst doing so raise money for Sobell House Hospice Charity, an Oxford based palliative care hospice who looked after him so well in his final days and Cancer Research UK, a cancer research and awareness charity in the UK.
Having been inactive from a fitness perspective since 2012 when I ran the 27th Marathon Des Sables, a 250km ultra marathon across the Sahara Desert. I wanted to test my limits again and have committed to complete the following challenges:
The Isle of Wight Challenge: Many sail around it, thousands have ‘rocked’ at its festivals, and now I plan to run, walk & crawl 100km around it in April.
Completed: 21 hours 21 minutes.
No alcohol for 12 months. I have now reached month 6 and continue to stick to my commitment.
Expected duration – 8760 hours
No Social Media for 12 months – Expected duration – 8760 hours
I am now trying to take advantage of this momentum and would like to attract further support and awareness of what I am trying to achieve. I have raised over £8,000 since the beginning of the year and have set a target of £20,000 which I hope can be far exceeded!
