Big up to Pedro for his Humanrace Sprint Triathlon this weekend!

Pedro Mendes is one of our fantastic volunteers. He came along to help us at the London International Dive Show and is constantly working hard to fundraise for Project AWARE. And when I say working hard, I mean working hard!

Big up to Pedro for his Humanrace Sprint Triathlon this weekend!

He has been undergoing some rather intense training regimes, in activities that he has never done before, and then he has dived right in and entered himself into a number of sporting events over the course of the year (gulp!).

So far this year, he has suffered an extreme off road adventure race, putting himself through the same paces as a marine! He has sprinted in triathlons and has tasked himself on lots of challenges to ensure he raises funds for the protection of our ocean planet.

This weekend, he is taking part in the Eton Humanrace Sprint Triathlon and will also challenge himself to the Virgin Active London Triathlon next month! 

He will end the year with another Grim Challenge and hopes to raise £2000 for Project AWARE from all of his efforts.

So far, he has raised £835.48 with his biggest donation from STA Graydon of £100! A massive thank you to STA Graydon for their valuable support and to everyone that have contributed towards his target goal!

Good luck Pedro and thank you for dedication to Ocean Protection!

Pedro's update!:

Here’s the latest guys! I’ve managed to complete the Eton Sprint Distance Triathlon on the 22nd June in 1hr 23mins – which is my quickest time in a triathlon so far, and this one was an even bigger swim (750m rather than 400m) than before!

I expected this one to be more of a struggle – especially on the back of playing 7 games of Tag Rugby in 4 days; so I went into this race with no pre-race rest and somewhat tired legs – so watch out for the next one :)

I’d like to say a massive thank you to my two biggest sponsors to date so far, STA Graydon and WPM for their sponsorship of £100 and £50 respectively – thanks very much guys!
