The RWF, with the help of many dedicated and wonderful volunteers, helps people who've been involved with the criminal justice system to explore their potential beyond previous beliefs and to create positive futures for themselves and their families.
Each year, an RWF Challenge Team takes on a challenge to raise awareness of this invaluable work and to raise funds to support its delivery.
In 2019, at The Royal Windsor Triathlon, I cycled 22km as part of a 3 person relay team in the 'Sprint' distance catagory.
In 2020, at the same event, I will cycle 44km and then run 10km as part of a 2 person relay team, in the 'Olympic' distance catagory.
That's on Sunday 14th June and then, 7 days later, I will cycle 100 miles from Birmingham to Coventry and back.
So quite an increase in challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it!
The money I raise through these two events, will go towards supporting the work of the RWF's LifeChanger Mentoring programme, working with people leaving custody.
Please give generously and thank you fo taking the time to read this far!
Wish me luck!
Go for it Roger and RWFers
Training has already begun for my double challenge for The RWF in 2020, below is a photo of the treadmill after a recent 10k run, which I'm doing once a week now with a faster 5k too.
Roger's fundraising page will be accepting donations for another 254 days.
The first thing we do, is listen. For many of our clients, this is the 1st time they've been heard.
