Daniel Rendall our Business Development Manager is bravely taking part in the ultimate walking challenge, The London to Brighton Trek 2014 on the 21st June 2014, to help raise crucial sponsorship funds in support of the British Heart Foundation.
Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and The British Heart Foundation are leading the fight with donations powering life-saving research to help keep more families together.
Daniel said “I have always enjoyed pushing myself and chose the British Heart Foundation as I have lost loved ones through heart problems and felt the need to give something back.”
The London to Brighton Trek is no walk in the park at a whopping non-stop 105 km it is a challenging and gruelling experience, only just over half of the walkers managed to complete the distance last year!
Joining Futures Supplies just over a year ago Daniel has become a popular and well liked member of the team and has been busy in recent months with his pre-event training which he hopes will be the key to his success on this amazing trek.
Daniel, who has become known by the nickname ‘Superman’ due to his striking resemblance to Clarke Kent and apparent superhuman abilities, will begin the walk at Sandown Race Course with his friend Chris. Starting off at 8am and continue to walk through the night for an estimated 20 hours – he will certainly need those superhuman abilities!
Daniel will have his trusty head torch, the support of the gang at Futures Supplies, the other walkers and the inspiration of money he will raise to help this worthy cause. He will endure 1,026 metres of walking, climbing and a terrain which includes pavement, footpaths, bridleway and unsealed paths with the last five miles walking alongside the promenade hopefully enjoying views of Hove and Brighton in the early hours of the morning.
Everyone at Futures Supplies is giving a big shout out in support of Daniel and we hope you will join us in wishing him luck and supporting him and this worthy cause and join the fight for every heartbeat by sponsoring him.
