Gary Ramsbottom, a PE teacher and Head of Year 13 at Aylesbury Grammar School will take on the 141-mile Austrian Ironman challenge to help raise £5,000 for CRY.
The challenge will consist of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride, and a marathon (26.22-mile run).
Mr Ramsbottom hopes to raise £5000 to get 100 students screened. Alongside this, he wants to create awareness of screening, and research, and supporting affected families.
“My ambition is to raise as much money as possible, to build an AGS CRY screening fund, to be used to provide screening opportunities, and also, to support our families who are not in a position to fully fund screening for their sons themselves”.
The 50-year-old now aims to take on the mammoth challenge on July 4 in Austria, but with the impacts of lockdown that has been ‘tough’.
