Ironman to raise money for Malvern Special Families

A real-life super hero has pledged to fundraise for Malvern Special Families by taking part in not one, but TWO Ironman challenges for the small charity.

Tom Brazington will be doing a “Double Ironman” in Snowdonia in September – which means swimming 4.8 miles, followed by a 224-mile bike ride and then running two back-to-back marathons, totalling 52.4 miles as part of ‘The World’s Toughest Triathlon’. 

Tom said: “Why would I do this you might ask? Why not! life is too short and pushing yourself to the limit is very empowering but mainly it offers a way to do something special for others that are less fortunate than ourselves.”

“I have decided to do this for Malvern Special Families a wonderful local Malvern/Worcestershire charity that have helped friends of mine with care for their sister and hopefully to help many more children to interact with other children in similar positions.”

“It seems easy in this day and age to run for the popular charities and even though they are amazing and super important its still just as important to look after the smaller one and a local charity seems just perfect and fitting for me to help.”

Malvern Special Families charity provides safe and fun social opportunities for children and young people with disabilities aged between five and 19 in ‘out-of-school hours’ in Malvern and in Worcester.

Cassie Zoro, community fundraiser at Malvern Special Families, said: “Our small charity relies on the enthusiasm of fabulous community fundraisers like Tom, and the generosity of their sponsors.”
