The Web Project’s Managing Directors compete in the Blenheim Triathlon to raise money for Leukaemia Research (now bloodwise).
Nick Maynard and Mike Stepney from The Web Project joined more than 4000 triathletes to compete in the Mazda Blenheim Triathlon and raise much needed money for Leukaemia Research. After swimming 750 meters, cycling 20km and running 5km they have so far raised £875.98…and counting.
“Working in the world of Search Engine Optimisation delivers a daily mental workout, but doesn’t do much for your waistline” begins Nick, “so we decided to sign-up for the Blenheim Triathlon and keep both mind and body in shape”.
“Attempting to master three different disciplines has been a challenge, but thankfully the training has paid dividends” continues Nick “It’s also been a real boost to have the support of ‘Banana Army’, who do essential work raising funds for Leukaemia Research. It’s been a great day and while I’m exhausted a time of one hour 34 minutes isn’t too bad time for a newbie”.
Nick and Mike decided to raise money for Leukaemia Research as both of their families have recently been affected by cancer. “There can’t be many more deserving charities than Leukaemia Research” begins Mike “Their work makes a real difference to cancer sufferers and their families. We are proud to help raise awareness and funds…only next time we are thinking of something a little less tiring, perhaps a sponsored pub crawl?”
In the United Kingdom nearly 25,000 people are diagnosed with blood cancer every year and Leukaemia Research is dedicated to helping each and every one of them. Leukaemia Research funds scientists and doctors help improve the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. They also provide free information and practical support for patients, friends and families of anyone suffering from blood cancer.
