National Squad Coach fundraises for Teenage Cancer Trust
RS Tera National Squad Coach and ex-Tera sailor Dylan Collingbourne is fundraising for the Teenage Cancer Trust and attempting 3000 push-ups during the month of June, as well as the normal daily exercise regime of sailing, cycling, windsurfing and paddleboarding!
The Teenage Cancer Trust's vision is a future where young people’s lives don’t stop because they have cancer. They make sure they’re treated as young people first, cancer patients second and everything they do aims to improve the teenagers quality of life and chances of survival.
Dylan said "I am attempting the Teenage Cancer Trust 3000 push-up challenge as I have recently completed my first year of Uni studying Sports & Exercise Science and realised even I needed to get in better shape physically. I saw the Teenage Cancer Trust 3000 push-up challenge on Facebook and thought it would be a good opportunity to test myself, and raise money for a good cause. I am happy to support The Trust as I have had a friend who suffered dearly from cancer whilst in school, and the charity helped him through it every step of the way. Some people are not as lucky as some of us, able to sail and get out on the water, therefore I hope this money can help them get through any difficult times and they can enjoy themselves., enjoying activities we take for granted"
Dylan is hoping to raise £500 for the Teenage Cancer Trust by the end of this month, so if you can help please click on the button below to donate.
