Very best wishes Allan for your treatment and these challenges. 2 wonderful charities to support. We’re you serious about the invitation for the Kerry ring ( even just part!)?

Allan Briddock is raising money for Rainbow Migration and Fight Bladder Cancer

A personal challenge to raise a few quid for small charities

My story

Hello.

I am in the midst of treatment for bladder cancer. My bladder was removed on 3 May 2022 and I am currently trying to learn how to use my 'neobladder'. Chemo starts in a couple of weeks, followed, hopefully, by immunotherapy as the cancer is Stage 3. I am very lucky to have access to the most amazing medical team and treatment and the prognosis is good.

Having some goals works for me personally and I thought I would take the opportunity to raise a few quid for a couple of small and amazing charities.

I cannot say exactly which events I will do or when exactly I will do them, but I am pledging to do these events by September 2023:

[1] 1500 metre swim (aim by September 2022)

[2] 10k run (aim by January 2023)

[3] 100k cycle (aim by May 2023)

[4] Walk the Kerry Ring (135miles / 215 km) (aim by July 2023) (join me! )

[5] Do an Olympic distance triathlon (no promises on time, I always came last when I was 10 years younger and wasn't recovering from cancer!) (aim by September 2023)

Flight Bladder Cancer is a small UK charity that supports people with or who had bladder cancer and who raise crucial awareness of this not well-known cancer. https://www.fightbladdercancer.co.uk/

Rainbow Migration supports LGBTQI refugees and advocates for the better and fairer treatment of LGBTQI refugees in the UK. https://www.rainbowmigration.org.uk/

Both charities rely on donations and both punch above their weight with what they do with the funds they receive. Any donation will be shared equally between the two and will literally make a difference to someone's life. I know things are tough financially at the moment and any size donation is very welcome and gratefully received.

Thank you for reading.

Allan

Today I progressed a little bit on the way to doing my pledges - I went for a swim! Highgate Ponds on a glorious morning and I did one lap nice and gently, resting at each lifebelt. It made me feel alive again. Chemo tomorrow so not sure when I'll get the next swim in, but today was wonderful.

On the day I started chemo, I reached my taget again! (Thanks Sonia x). Going to raise it again to £4k. I'm so so grateful.
