2017 Plans

UWe have more challenges planned for 2017; depite some injuries and setbacks that have forced us to reduce our plans, there’s still plenty to come!

Thames Path Challenge


On September 9th, we are hitting the Thames path for another endurance walk. 5 of us (Nicki, Matt, Hayley, Andy & Nicki’s dad ‘Del-boy’) will tackle the full 100km, with Maddy, our 15 year-old daughter set to tackle the overnight continuous 50km challenge and a further 3 family members, (Amanda, Flo & Lucy) walking for 25km! Here’s to success and many pounds being raised by this fabulous bunch of courageous and generous folks!


The Duchenne Dip

On Saturday 23rd September, a whole bunch of the most awesome kids will take to the water in our second Duchenne Dip swimming marathon event.  They will be giving snack bags to keep them going and we will have a cake stall selling plenty of tasty treats!  There will be plenty of great prizes to win in our raffle and lots of celebration as the children show off their swimming prowess! Everyone will be given a certificate and medal to say thank you and well done.  And finally, there will be a prize for the swimmer who raises the most sponsorship.  Last year, the fabulous Charlie Gadd won tickets for a two people to enjoy a sofa and treats at the beautiful Regal cinema in Melton.
