Staunton Harold Triathlon


CRY is a charity that we as a family have supported for a few months now following both Matt and my daughter having been screened at an event at Derby University in memory of Sam Wright.

I admired Sam’s mum who was at the screening day, in the face of losing her son was passionate about hosting screening days so others wouldn’t have to suffer a loss.

I said that going forward I would support CRY and Sam’s memorial as and when I could. This was an opportunity to do a sponsored event and as my son was happy to do this he entered his first triathlon at Staunton Harold.

Matt is committed to train to achieve an ambition he has and today showed he could one day achieve this. He finished 3rd overall and was 1st in the under 20 age category. Positions he wasn’t expecting to finish in as he was doing it for the experience having only started training in two of the disciplines recently due to A level exams.

We hope the money raised will go some way to help Elaine in hosting another screening day in the future.
