Steven and Kierans virtual Run/Cycle  up Ben Nevis
We did it
On 11th May 2021 we successfully raised £100 with 7 supporters in 35 days

We are trying to raise money for Derwentside Swimming Club as part of a wider fundraiser whereby the club are trying to raise £20k.

Derwentside Swimming Club is a local swimming club based in the Stanley and Consett area.They are one of the leading clubs in the region and county with athletes competing from an early age into the senior age group. During the COVID pandemic the club have lost out on valuable funds normally raised via Swimming galas and events. The club are running a fundraising effort to try and raise £20k.

Our challenge will see Steven trying his hardest to run up the equivalent of Ben Nevis and Kieran cycle up Ben Nevis all 4413 ft over the next 35 days.  Steven is starting off cold and has not run properly since December so fitness will be a challenge to overcome. However if injury should strike henwill aim to replace running with walking if needed. Kieran should be fine so he might even do it twice ????. 

Any donations welcome and gratefully received.
