Helen’s TriHards gear up for triathlon

June 14, 2013

Remember these amazing folk? They just get more amazing! Here’s their latest venture – getting fully in gear for the Dawlish Sprint Triathlon in September. Helen's TriHard cycling shirts

These stunning cycling jerseys are just the latest venture of these intrepid THF supporters. Just to remind readers, very special Helen Foundation friend, Claire Twitchin, and her husband Patrick have known the Kirk family for ages and – last summer – 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 Sprint Triathlon. Never having done anything like that before, Claire, Patrick and friends decided to get a trainer involved and, since then, something remarkable has happened. The early resolve has not weakened but strengthened – so much so that as well as training every week, more and more people have joined in and the group now numbers nearly 30.

Claire says: “It has been a pleasure setting up such a fantastic group of people all inspired by such a great charity. As well as training for Dawlish Triathlon, we aim to take part in a variety of events throughout the year in order to support, raise awareness and of course, funds for THF. Anyone is welcome to join us and the TriHard page on Facebook is a great way to keep up to date with up and coming training and events.

We truly admire the TriHards – such a great bunch of folks, now training even harder for the September Triathlon and with many of them entering other sporting events round the country in support of THF.

If you would like to own one of these exclusive cycling jerseys, costing £50 each with any profit going to THF, simply email us with THF cycling jersey in the subject line giving us your size and we will take it from there. There will only be one manufacturing run, so if you want one, act now.

It will be simply brilliant seeing these jerseys appear at events round the world! Go, TriHards, go!
