Helen’s Tri-Hards Tackle Triathlon

November 13, 2014

thf_trihardsRemember these amazing folk? Very special Helen Foundation friend, Claire Twitchin and her husband Patrick have known the Kirk family for ages, and in 2012 Claire announced that she wanted to do something major to support THF as she has long admired Helen’s legacy.

She decided that she and a few friends would go in for the recently launched Dawlish Triathlon, a sprint version of the full triathlon involving sea swimming, running and cycling.  Well, the group just got bigger and bigger…

With now over 100 people calling themselves Helen’s TriHards, they tackle all kinds of challenges, raising funds for THF as well as other charities. This year, a number of them ran in the Dawlish Sprint Triathlon to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind, with 2 major TriHards friends coping with sight impairment.

We admire you, TriHards! Inspirational! Contact the Helen Foundation Facebook page for more details about this group.
