CJE to raise cash for hospicesBy Chris Williams. Published: 31st Aug 2005, 16:02:16 | Permalink | Printable
Generosity in stockCJE Micros gaffer Chris Evans is set to compete in a grueling triathlon to raise cash for charity. The Southwater Sprint Triathlon, which involves a 400m swim in a lake, a 18.5km bike ride and a 3.8km run, is to take place on Sunday September 4th.
Although Chris aims to complete 22.7km of the punishing course, he says he has already bagged 300 quid in sponsorship and is seeking more.
"I have been doing swimming training for some years but only started training for the Cycling and Running this year," confessed brave Chris. He says he'll split the money raised between St Barnabas and "a suitable Hospice in a 'deprived area'."
