1st Year pupil in month-long triathlon fundraiser

1st Year James has decided to take on a big fundraising challenge lasting the month of May in memory of his younger brother, who was stillborn.

Named ‘May Madness’ James will be running 3km, cycling 3km, and rowing 1km everyday for 30 days, which he started on 2 May, to raise money for Tommy’s, a charity that ‘funds medical research into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage, and provides an information service about health in pregnancy’.

James said: “Ever since my brother Harry was stillborn, I have wanted to help others going through the same, and reduce the risk of it happening to others. Harry will always be part of our family and is sorely missed. My aim is just to make a difference, however small.”

James has some equipment at home that he uses to reach his daily targets, but also likes to loop around his local area in Bodmin.

James added: “This will be hard to achieve some days as I will have to fit it in around school and clubs, which will mean some early starts and late finishes.”
