Since I first got into this fitness lark I have done a few events in the name of charity. This has involved an eight mile run, a 10k and a half marathon. However one member of the triathlon club is well and truly putting me to shame with a 120km trek across the Arctic this coming February. Absolute madness! Francine volunteers for Sussex Search and Rescue who are responsible for locating vulnerable people when they go missing. She and her SSR colleague will be braving -35 degree temperatures to raise £3000 for new search equipment.
Francine signed up to this incredible challenge last February and started doing triathlon just to get fit for the Arctic. After taking part in the club's "Try-a-Tri" she decided to join the club and is now "hooked on triathlon"!
Anyway, you can read all about it on the local paper's website and if you want to donate to the cause you can do so here.
