Fundraiser for St Theresa's - Grant McTaggart

23rd September starting 7pm

Grant McTaggart from Darlington Tri Club recently ran Marathon des Sables, one of the toughest challanges for an athlete to take on. The Marathon des Sables is a multi-stage adventure through the Sahara desert with 1,000 other participants - 150 miles of running, walking and trekking over 6 days. That’s the same as five and a half marathons in extreme conditions in 120 degrees Fahrenheit while carrying everything to be self-sufficient including food, clothing and medical supplies.

Come and join Grant at Hummersknott School on September 23rd,19:00 - 21:00 and hear his story of how tough this event actually is and what he had to go through to complete the race.

It's £6 entrance fee, to be paid on the door and includes refreshments and there will be a raffle on the evening.

100% of money raised will be donated to St Theresa's so please offer your support to Grant and a worthy local charity.
