Hello again…. And let’s welcome our most recent fundraisers, Kobe Soffer (Tough Mudder) & James Bentley (3 Peaks Challenge)
It's been some time and now, a fresh fundraising page. Just for all of you to know, I, or rather we have raised over £35,000.00 now that’s a lot of money for a good cause!!!!
Over the past couple of years I’ve been in training to keep my 44 year old belly down to a minimum.... Previously I have cycled from London to Paris with a very good friend of mine Kristian (Buzcel) Burrill. He's also mad. Done a 48.1 mile walk around Jersey with my oldest friend Zed (5 times) & numerous Tough Mudders, as well as a few triathlons in between.
This time, I would like to welcome on board Kobe Soffer who'll be doing his 1st EVER Tough Mudder. Nervous & apprehensive, Kobe had been nausing his family whilst doing 'Insanity' every day. A gruelling workout in preparation for his challenge. I've not been at the house, but can imagine it'll feel like the floorboards are coming through. He'll smash it :)
Again, we are doing this to raise money for CF. As many of you know CF is what my son Dylan has. Many are not aware what CF is, and just to brief you, CF is a life threatening disease that attacks the lungs and the pancreas. A lot of medication and physiotherapy is required daily. Current life span is only 40 years.
If you would like to see what a person with CF goes through every day please do watch both of these links

Also have a look at this cool kid.
and one more very cool Video and won YouTube best Non-Profit video on the digital DoGooder Awards
The CF Trust means a lot to me because they are the people behind (raising funds for) gene therapy which can offer a cure for this life threatening condition... and I do believe that now the CF trust are so close, which in turn will offer life changing results for anyone affected by CF, including my son, leading to a better quality of life.
A big thank you goes to all of you who have always been there supporting me and help me raise money….to my lovely family and friends…
together we will SEE OFF CF….I promise you.
Please help me reach my target and more.
Peace & Love
Steve, Gail, Dylan, Tash & Mad friends doing events along the way
