Super fit Ryan Procter is taking on a triple challenge to raise funds for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
The 43 year old from Longton, will be taking on a 1.5k swimathon, 25km bike ride and the Dougie Mac 5K one after another on Sunday 9th April.
Ryan has already raised £500 and hopes to raise more from the challenge, to thank the hospice for the care his mother Brenda Procter received recently after she was diagnosed with a kidney tumour.
She sadly passed away on 22nd February, and Ryan is doing the event in her memory.
Ryan Procter commented,
“The care my mum received at Dougie Mac was first rate. Nothing was too much trouble to make sure she was comfortable and pain free.
“It wasn’t just the care she received, but the care we as a family had while she was here that really made the difference.
“I will complete the swim then cycle from the Moorlands Leisure Centre to World of Wedgwood to complete the 5K.”
Suzi Smith, Corporate Fundraising & Events Head,
“We’d like to thank Ryan for taking on such a tough challenge to raise funds for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
“All monies raised will help us deliver excellent care to local people approaching end of life.”
