Hello and Welcome from Paul Renforth

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

  • Wow all done, that was along twelve hours, but we purservered and made it to the end. We burned 21600 calories between us and lost a stone in weight!!

We started at 0500hrs 22nd July 2011 in the Terminal of London Luton Airport and used a treadmill, exercise bike & eliptical trainer.

As a team we covered 708.5Km (440 miles) thats from Luton to Amsterdam and back in twelve hours!!

individual distances as follows:

Ryan Reynolds = 209.6Km (130 miles)

Matt Bryan = 245.7 Km (152 miles)

Paul Renforth = 253.2 Km (157 miles)

Well done lads excellant effort!!

We raised £2230.25 on the day and 1 trolley token!! Final amount raised we hope will be £3500!

To support us & Help 4 Heroes you can donate through this page.
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give so every donation goes further and if you are a UK taxpayer and give Gift Aid consent the charity will receive an extra 25% at no cost to you.
So if you donate £5.00 the goverment has to round that up to £6.25, so make them pay!!

Thanks You for the support, let's give something back together. Paul, Matt & Ryan
