Nick’s Holkham Triathlon

I am fundraising for my 70.3 Triathlon (Half Ironman) at Holkham Hall to raise money for NF2 BioSolutions UK.

On July 3rd I will attempt the Outlaw Half Holkham Triathlonwhich comprises of a refreshing 1.2 mile swim in the lake at Holkham Hall in Norfolk, a relaxing 56 mile ride around the beautiful countryside and a probably painful 13.1 mile run around the Holkham estate! I have completed triathlons in the past but have never attempted one as long as this!

Thank you for any donations that you can make,100% of the money goes to funding research for treatments and a cure for NF2.

The brilliant company I work for,Johnson Matthey, will also match the first 1000 pounds raised.

The last 10 months have been a challenging time for my family. In September 2021 we discovered that one of my sons had a large brain tumour, this was successfully removed by the amazing Neuro Surgery team at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Following surgery he had genetic testing and was diagnosed with NF2. My son has recovered well from surgery and is running around like any other 5 year old but we know that some time in the future he will have more tumours.
