Team Todd’s triathlon triumph

Dan, Sam & Nathan raised £1,385 for us by attempting the Arundel Sprint Triathlon. A huge well done to them and and thank you to everyone who supported them .

Dan’s daughter Olivia was born with aniridia in 2013 so we are a cause close to their hearts. To help us provide our services to more famiiles like theirs, they decided to get sponsorship to attempt a triathlon.

Together they took on the challenge of a 400m swim, 19km bike ride and 5.4k run. 16 May 2021 was cold and very wet! Sam was unable to take part due to a knee injury but Dan and Nathan battled through. Dan said afterwards:

I want to say a great big thank you to everyone who donated towards the charity Sprint triathlon, which I completed in a time to 1:20:55 and came 39th out of 98 competitors. The weather was dreadful but I enjoyed it none the less!

Keep going

What could you get sponsored to do in aid of Aniridia Network? If a collection, cake sale or sponsored car wash is more you thing then we would appreciate that too.
