Charlie's Lockdown Ironman Triathlon for Barnardos

Hi - I'm Charlie, I'm 6 years old and I love exercising. This summer we were supposed to be going to Spain where my dad was going to compete in an Ironman race and I was going to be there cheering him on. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus, our trip has been cancelled. But its not all bad news... Instead I have decided to do a full Ironman race here in Waterford! I am going to "swim"  4km, cycle 180km and run 42km in 60 days to raise money for Barnardo's Covid-19 Crisis Appeal. Because the sea is outside our 5k radius and the pools are closed I have decided to do press-ups instead of swimming. I will do 50 press-ups per 100m which totals 2000 press-up!!!  Barnardo's is a charity that helps children and families in really difficult situations and during lockdown this is even more important.  I am really excited to do this and hopefully raise loads of money for this brilliant charity. I'd be really happy if you could sponsor me and I'll keep you updated on how I'm getting on.
