Ever fancied taking part in a triathlon? Now's the perfect time as Velindre are the official charity of the Cardiff Triathlon 2017!
Double Triathlon World Champion and Team GB athlete, Helen Jenkins, is urging people to get fit and give Triathlon a go, specifically the Cardiff Triathlon 2017 in aid of Velindre Cancer Centre.
Helen will be sharing her knowledge and experience by offering her own training tips and race day advice to all participants who enter the Cardiff Triathlon in aid of Velindre Cancer Centre, as she support Velindre’s ‘HeadFirst Brain Tumour Research’. The Appeal, launched to increase the awareness and raise the profile of brain and spinal cord tumour research in Wales, has had a huge injection of funds thanks to a current brain tumour patient and a close friend of Helen, Mike Evans, and his supporters known as Team Evsy. There will also be an opportunity for Velindre’s Triathlon participants to meet Helen at a special vest presentation held closer to the race, at Wales’ premier Cancer Centre in Whitchurch, Cardiff.
“I am delighted that Velindre Fundraising is the chosen charity of the Cardiff Triathlon for the third year. As someone who has close friends being treated at Velindre currently, I know of the excellent care and treatment that happens there. If you’re tempted to take on a Triathlon then I’d urge you to take one of Velindre’s charity places and raise some vital funds at the same time!”
N.B Our charity places are now all taken but standard entry to the Cardiff Triathlon is available here!
