The Challenge

To get as many people as possible to join Scarlett’s Dragons and take part in the 2016 Blenheim Sprint Triathlon (swim 750m, bike 20km, run 5km) on Sunday 5th June.

Training and participating together creates a special atmosphere – the camaraderie is uplifting and the sense of achievement is enhanced. Most importantly, as a team, we can raise significant sums of money!

The 2016 Aim

In 2015, there were 165 members of Scarlett’s Dragons participating as individuals or teams. We ‘competed’ in a single, dedicated wave where we raised a truly superb sum in excess of £260,000.

For 2016, we are trying to get even more people involved to enable us to raise another significant sum for Bloodwise. We want to fill TWO waves – so we are encouraging everyone to Bring a Buddy, Find a Friend, Persuade a Pal, Recruit a Rival even! The more the merrier. Minimum fundraising is set at £250 per person and naturally we hope to exceed this figure.

The Reason

To raise money for Bloodwise (the new name for Leukaemia and Lymphona Research or LLR). We want to see the day when blood cancers will be no more. Research is the key to this goal. To quote Bloodwise:

“We want to stop people dying from blood cancers, make patients’ lives better and stop people getting blood cancers in the first place.”
