FAO, All Staff at Abbey infants and juniors, can you please pass on or print off and post on to the notice board for me please.
As you are aware that back in September I completed my first (and not my last) triathlon.
When I first discussed this with Alison, there was a little concern as I had never done anything like this before, and didn’t really know where to start. With that in mind I kept it quiet for the first few months, only speaking with people that had experience in the disciplines I was going to cover, cyclists, swimmers, runners and experienced triathletes.
They gave me great advice, and so I proceeded to get training (which was hard enough on it’s own). It was only when I started training that I realised how much of a feat this was going to be.
The days, weeks, months flew by and then with a month to go Alison and I decided that I could do this for something else as well as just the personal goal. We had known that a close friend’s mother had been diagnosed with MOTOR NEURONE Disease and we wanted to do something to support them. We understood that money raised wouldn’t help them directly, but if something could be done for others with the condition then that would make it worthwhile.
The JustGiving page has now closed, and I wanted to let you know that with your support and donations we have managed to raise an incredible £1025 (with the gift aide to be added), which is absolutely fantastic! A far cry from the £300 we originally wanted to raise.
I wanted to contact you ALL to say, THANK YOU.
Your support (training partners, advice givers, etc…), donations and encouragement was and is very humbling, and is fantastic to have experienced first-hand.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
