LE JOG and Outlaw Triathlon

Raised by 21 people in 38 months
On March 21st 2014 Rossi's life took a dramatic turn at just four years old.
After trying to get to the bottom of various health issues and constant high temperatures, Rossi was sent for a biopsy for suspected lymph node infection. He was diagnosed with the rarest form of Leukaemia, ALL (acute lymphoblastic Leukaemia ).
Rossi is currently on maintenance phase and his end date for treatment is 21st May 2017. He is fortunate that he has an excellent support network of family and friends, but not all families have that available to them.
Our aim is to be able to treat local children to days out and treats that can't be afforded by parents of children with cancer because they're too busy looking after their child to be able to work. This impacts everything in day to day life from ability to pay bills and run a household etc. Fortunately there is an amazing charity called Clic Sargent that offers help to families in our situation.
What we hope to do is to be able to offer an escape to these families and raise enough money to provide days out to places such as Alton towers, Lego Land, Wheelgate, simple trips to the cinema etc.
Helping children with cancer to live a fun life thoughout their treatment by providing treats, day trips and the small things that hopefully make them smile.

On May 21st, a group of us are going to cycle from Land's End to John O'Groats, doing approximately 100 miles per day. Over 9 days we will cover 960 miles. We are funding the trip ourselves, and arranging everything from hotels to cycle transport ourselves so that the Team Rossi Foundation get the maximum amount of your donation.

On 26th July I am competing in the Outlaw Thriathlon 2015 in Nottingham, in which I will complete a 2.4 mile swim, then 112 mile bike ride, followed by a 26.2 mile run. I'll have 17 hours to complete the race, although the course record is just under 9 hours, so I'm hoping to be closer to this time :) Again, I've paid all entry fees myself, so your donation will go straight towards helping these children.

I'll try to keep you up to date with my training, please give generously
