Cambridge woman takes on monster challenge to raise funds for Richmond Fellowship

A Cambridge woman is taking on the monster challenge of swimming, cycling and running to raise money for Richmond Fellowship.

Mara Sheldon and her husband are taking part in the Monster Sprint Triathlon in Feltwell near Thetford on Sunday (26 June). As an extra incentive for their training they decided to raise funds to support people experiencing mental health problems.

Mara, who works next door to Richmond Fellowship’s Cambridge Employment Service offices, said: “We wanted to do something in recognition of the important and amazing people some in our lives now and others sadly no longer with us, who have struggled and continue to struggle with mental illness. We also wanted to support a local charity.”

Good luck to the pair who will be aiming to complete a 450m swim, a 21km bike ride and then a 4km run. To support their fundraising efforts visit their JustGiving page.
