I am raising money for the British Red Cross by participating in the 2011 France Ironman. The Red Cross are a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. In 2004 the help they bought to the people effected by the boxing day tsunami was simply incredible. The recent destruction caused by the Christchurch earthquake and the tsunami in Japan have shocked the world again. The Red Cross have been working on the ground since these disasters began, mobilising teams to provide first aid and healthcare, and planning relief operations. There are many more appeals and crises that the Red Cross are involved in and you can find full details on their website, www.redcross.org.uk.
Please help by either going onto their website and donating to the projects that you would like to help, or sponsor me via my just giving page. All money I raise goes directly to the charity as I have paid all my own entry fees, transport accommodation etc.
