Wessex Heartbeat is very fortunate to have supporters who are willing to push themselves to the limit all in favour of raising money for the charity.
Stuart Grace is one of these supporters, as he gears up for playing 100 holes of golf and cycling 100 miles, all in one day on Friday 28th July.
Here is what Stuart had to say about the colossal challenge:
“I knew I had one last challenge in me, it will be tough but in all the years I’ve been fundraising this could be the hardest. The challenge is 100 holes of golf and cycling 100 miles in a day.
On Friday 28th July at 3.00am I will leave home and cycle on my bike to 6 courses in Hampshire and Dorset, Crane Valley GC being the first of five 18 holes of golf. Because of the length of the Challenge I will have to ride hard between each course. The following courses will be Highcliffe Castle, Barton-on-Sea, Walhampton (Lymington) Stoneham and finally Romsey. Having played the final 18 at Stoneham I will cycle the last five miles to Romsey to play the last 10 holes hoping to finish by 10.00pm.
With help from my brother ( transporting clubs, spare bikes , food, water and clothing) and cycling friends I feel this is possible. Please help me to raise money for this great charity in their 25 Anniversary year. As a cyclist who has played other sports I know the importance of a strong heart, and I know mine will be thinking of friends I have lost too soon in life.”
