A massive thank you and well done to Phil who has raised £560 for Aniridia Network UK by running a triathalon. The race at Ripon racecourse in Yorkshire was his first ever attempt at the swimming, cycling, running challenge. Here’s a video of Phil crossing the line wearing his ANUK t-shirt in 3 hours and 38 minutes.

ANUK Fundraising Officer Liz said afterwards “We are very grateful to Phil, his sponsors and all the donors for helping us continue our work of supporting people with aniridia and their families. It will help towards funding our buddy scheme and in printing information leaflets for new parents like Phil.”

Keep going

What could you get sponsored for ANUK to do? If a collection, cake sale or car wash is more you thing then we would appreciate that too. Our fundraising target for this financial year 2013/14 is £3500 which we need to just keep going. Find out how to get involved.
