Weʼre raising £10,000 to 3-1-5 do Kilimanjaro to Coast, to raise funds for:
The Royal Lancaster Infirmary – for the Bay Hospitals Charity
Sean Thornton, Owner and Director of 3-1-5 Health Club is getting on his bike and taking positive action in the fight against cardiac illness for The Bay Hospital Charity Cardiac facilities at MBHT (Morecambe Bay Hospital Trust).
Alongside Sean will be 3-1-5 Managers, Deena Gillan and Helen Parkinson and Performance Coach, Colin Bell. In addition, they will be joined by Sean’s Industry friend and colleague, Stuart Burge plus 3-1-5 member Jenn Hutton.
They will be challenging themselves as part of a team of cyclists riding through Africa to support the work of the charity.
A journey full of fun, friendship and incredible support
The 5-day event will cover over 430 kilometres and involve some enormous climbs on difficult terrain in the African heat. 430kms over five days – both on and off road –away from the usual tourist trails. It will be a journey full of fun, friendship and incredible support. Cyclists of all ages and from all walks of life come together to challenge themselves for a great cause.
As well as training hard Sean is going through his own personal health battle as he is currently receiving treatment for Multiple Myeloma. Sean, always the adventurer was diagnosed with the disease in October 2018. The diagnosis came not long after completing a 800km cycle through Nepal. For Sean, his recovery has been a rollercoaster of a journey. Completing this event will be a personal goal in his ambition to live every moment to the full.
The 3-1-5 team will be organising a number of fund-raising inspirational and motivational challenges over the next 9 months. They will be inviting members and businesses from the community to participate in many of them. Kicking off the proceedings was a 4 hour spinathon held in the Health Club in November.
