On 22nd July, a team of 17 brave triathletes completed the AJ Bell London Triathlon for Race Against Blood Cancer. This was the second time Race Against Blood Cancer teams participated in the event to raise money for the charity and its ongoing efforts to help save lives.
Despite the weather not being on their side, the triathletes stayed strong and passed the finish line with smiles on their face and pride in their hearts.
Known to be the world’s largest triathlon attracting over 13,000 participants and 30,000 spectators, the AJ Bell Triathlon never disappoints. And 2017 was no exception. Offering many different formats and distances, Race Against Blood Cancer saw triathletes leave in various waves throughout the day.
We are immensely proud and appreciative of the of the great team effort that went into this event. Despite the hard work, sweat and tears, the team managed to raise thousands of pounds to help give every blood cancer patient an equal chance of finding a suitable match.
The Race Against Blood Cancer team would like to give a special thank you to our top individual fundraiser for this event, Maleena Pone, who despite never having been in to sports, she manged to fit triathlon training into her very busy weeks and learnt how to swim just for the event. Many thanks Maleena for being amazing and raising £700 for the charity via your mydonate page.
Thank you to all those taking part in the event as well as the spectators who went to cheer the team on. You were all amazing! Special thanks also for the support of Global Accounting Team and Team Twenty 5 Eight.
We look forward to the 2018 event – if you would like to join our team next year, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
