Take on your own challenge

Swim, Bike and Run for Premature Babies

On December 5, 2021, I will be undertaking the biggest personal challenge of my life: a full-distance Ironman, involving a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and a 42.2km run. 
This, however, is nothing compared to the challenge that some parents face when their babies are born prematurely - often many weeks before their due date, necessitating prolonged stays in hospital with access to highly specialised and expensive care and equipment. I have the absolute privilege of sharing my twin parenting journey with several incredible parents that have gone through this experience, and who inspire me every day with their strength, determination and bravery. I hope I can even be half as strong and brave as they are as I tackle my upcoming race - and would love the opportunity to contribute to the care and support of these amazingly strong little fighters and their parents along the way. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
