Jon's Iron Man Challenge

Jon has chosen to fundraise for then recognition for the support we gave his wife when she needed it most.

Jonathan Cleaver took on the Bolton Ironman Challenge on the 16th July.  Jon completed the gruelling event involving swimming 3.8km, cycling 112 miles and running 26.2 miles in just 12 hours 32 minutes!

Jon says "after 2 marathons so far this year I am taking on 'The Big One' - the UK Iron Man 

My wife Joanne was diagnosed with Cancer last year and had to undergo chemotherapy in order to cure this terrible disease. Thankfully Joanne has made a full recovery and is now in remission. 

During these dark days Rossendale Hospice gave Joanne support, hope and light when she needed it most.  The hospice not only do wonderful work for those in their final days, they also help anyone with life limiting diseases.

The Iron Man is entirely self funded by myself and every penny will go back to the hospice to help those in real need in your local community.  Jon has completely smashed his personal target and raised a staggering £2920.
