POW! Last Saturday, eighteen people we support took part in the Superhero Triathlon at Dorney Lake, joining hundreds of participants to swim, cycle and walk or run the special course in this iconic location. They each had a Style Acre ‘sidekick’ joining them along the way to support and provide help and encouragement if needed!
Our swimmers got their wetsuits on, whilst the cyclists prepared their bikes and the walkers and runners chatted to their sidekicks.
Then after a warm-up led by some brilliant Paralympians (including Johnny Peacock) we were off! The swimmers did amazingly well swimming in the murky, chilly and choppy waters of the lake – once they were back their teammates sped off on bikes and then the third teammate set off on foot. At the finish line the whole team got a big shiny medal.
There was a real sense of pride and achievement by all at the end, and the Superheroes have been buzzing about it all week!
They couldn’t have done it without all our amazing staff and volunteers who gave up their Saturday to get everybody there and help them unleash their Superhero Powers!
The Superheroes have been fundraising too, and you can show your admiration by donating online if you haven’t already popped your name on somebody’s sponsor form!
Clare Balding was there on the day with C4 filming for a documentary which will be aired in September. Watch this space…
