There were nine fundraising challenges in 2017 undertaken by some of our Trustees and by some of our friends.
Please have a look at the Rachel Kerridge Trust 2017 Year in Review video below:
There were five fundraising challenges in 2016 undertaken by some of our Trustees and some of our friends.
Antony Kerridge started the year off setting himself a challenge of completing 12 marathons in 12 months.
Shaun Kerridge set himself two events to complete in the Portsmouth Half Marathon and the Rough Runner; he was joined by James Scarsbrook, Jim Johnson and Matthew Duff for the latter who kindly contributed towards the trust's fundraising efforts.
Gemma Kerridge joined thousands of others in a sea of pink for the Portsmouth 5k Pretty Muddy & 10k Race For Life held by Cancer Research UK - one of our beneficiaries.
Richard took on a mammoth event in the Brutal Double Triathlon which he had signed up for in 2015 but very kindly began raising funds for the trust.
Each of our fundraisers completed their respective events covering approximately 411 miles on foot, 220 miles cycling, and 4 miles swimming; a very impressive coverage.
A total of just over £5000 was donated to the trust in support of our fundraisers; an incredible amount for our first year of running. The trust passed on £1412 of this to the two charities that we support: The Solent MS Therapy Centre and Cancer Research UK who both received £706 respectively.
We would like to thank each of our fundraisers for their fantastic effort in not only completing their respective events but for also raising some great amounts for the Trust. Thank you also to all of those people who supported our fundraisers by donating money.
If you would like to support the trust by completing your own fundraising event then please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further.
