fundraiser phillipawilliamson

Philippa Williamson took part in the London Mazda Triathlon on 1 August. "This year I decided to take on the challenge of the London Triathlon again to improve my time, to take on a few family members who had signed up and - most importantly - to raise money for a very valuable charity and support the research that goes into helping people with this disorder and help make their lives better. Several people I know suffer from thyroid disease and it affects their lives hugely. It was a brilliant day and the sun was out which made it all worthwhile and I improved my time from last year by 16 minutes and 23 seconds so the training paid off.” £395
