Sporting challenges have always played a large role in my life. From the early age of 11, my cross-country teacher, who was my first mentor, took me to the local fell races in the Yorkshire moors of England and those early experiences inspired me to embark upon a 30-year career in health and fitness.
I spent 12 years in the British army as an army physical training instructor and represented Great Britain as a national triathlete, most notably, in three world championships. I currently work as a personal fitness trainer with clients of all ages and physical capabilities. Through my work supporting people in their quests for a healthy lifestyle, I have become involved with the Children’s Tumor Foundation (CTF). The CTF is a charity which raises funds and awareness for people suffering from the genetic condition, neurofibromatosis.
I am riding in RAAM to raise awareness and funds for the CTF and feel blessed to have the opportunity to use my physicality to make a difference. I hope you will join me in supporting the CTF and raising the funds it so desperately needs to find a cure for neurofibromatosis, support sufferers and their families and raise awareness and compassion for those affected with the condition.
