Congratulations to Sophie for completing the South Coast Triathalon

On Saturday 18 August, Sophie braved rough seas and  strong currents and completed a 750 metre swim, a 20k cycle and finished off with a 5k run.  Not only did Sophie complete this brave challenge but she did so in record time, clocking up an amazing  1:41:33!
Well done Sophie and thank you for doing it all for Lara’s Foundation and thanks too to all of you who kindly donated. You can still sponsor Sophie by going to her page on our ‘Events’ section.

Sophie Laughton’s Triathlon

On the 18th August 2012, I will be taking part in the South Coast Triathlon to raise money and awareness for Lara’s Foundation.

I will be swimming 750 meters in the sea off the coastof Seaford where I grew up, cycling 20k and finally finishing with a 5k run… It’s no easy task but my hope is that I can raise lots of money to contribute to Lara’s Foundation.

I am excited to embark on this challenge but even more so because I believe in the hope to deliver a better future for others in South America.

I never actually got the chance to meet Lara but when I heard the news and saw the impact on my dear friend Gemma, it inspired me to get involved.

I hope to raise as much as I can for Lara’s Foundation so please do pass the link around any spectators would be greatly appreciated.

Lts of shouting my be required!
