Tower-to-Tower 2018 is a gruelling challenge, that will push the team of 12 ‘ordinary’ people to their limits, from the Eiffel Tower to Tower Bridge. I will be one of these 12 people…
This is a new route, never before attempted, which is more demanding and exhausting than ever before. We will be travelling a staggering 350 miles, over 4 days and nights. The first part of the route is a 150mile cycle from the Eiffel Tower to Le Havre. Immediately followed by 115 mile row across the English Channel, which is expected to take over 40 hours – each person will do 2 hours on, 2 hours off… for 2 days and nights… Once we reach Brighton, it’s a 60 mile run to the finish at Tower Bridge. This mammoth journey will be exhausting, physically and mentally, and will push us to our limits.
The Tower-to-Tower challenge is about raising awareness of the daily exhaustion of the families who are looking after children with serious, life-limiting conditions. Every single day they are experiencing sleep deprivation from providing round-the-clock care, making it hard to function physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
The Donna Louise provide an incredible service for young people and children across Staffordshire and Cheshire, and support for their families. The money raised will help them continue to provide this vital service and expand their facilities. I am a firm supporter of the Donna Louise and I hope this challenge will encourage people to dig deep and show their support.
