Marcus – My Fundraising Story
A group of 8 of our dedicated and incredible supporters led by Marcus Pemberton took on a series of “Tricky Quests” throughout 2017 to raise funds for Cerebral Palsy Sport.
The group had already taken on a Wolf Run and they trained for a whole series of quests.
In June 2017, the group took on a 3km open water swim and returned times between 57 mins and 1 hr 37 mins and everyone completed the swim. Well done to all of you!
Marcus said of their fundraising efforts: “We’re a group of friends who struggle to find enough time to see each other, and also to stay fit! So we decided to complete a number of ‘Tricky Quests’ every year for a good cause, meaning that we make sure that we stay in touch, we have something to train for together, and we raise some money for a great charity. We chose CP Sport as some of us have family members with Cerebral Palsy, and all of us have had our lives enriched by sport, and we’re therefore really proud to know that the money we raise will help children have what we had growing up.”
The group completed the Le Marathon du Medoc – “The Longest Marathon in the World” on the 9th September 2017.
“The marathon was great, as ever we had quite the spread of times but everyone finished, including Ali who tore his patella tendon at mile 3 and still struggled through the remaining 23”
What an incredible achievement!
The theme was Rock n Roll, so in true Tricky Quester’s style, they all ran it dressed as KISS! The pictures speak for themselves!
They are fortunate to have an amazing boost to the fundraising efforts by having their total matched up to £2,500 by Euromonitor Inteernational! Thank you for supporting our Tricky Questers!
They have another quiz night planned so as the lads are looking to raise money for us as a cause that are close to their hearts, please visit their fundraising page and support their amazing effort!
Thank you for supporting Cerebral Palsy Sport!
