AMAZING LOCAL TRIO COMPLETE 12in12 CHALLENGES

AMAZING LOCAL TRIO COMPLETE 12in12 CHALLENGES

Three brave local women from Maidenhead public relations agency, Promote, are coming to the end of an incredible 12 months where they have all completed 12 challenges to raise funds for HOPEHIV.

Between them the three colleagues will have completed over 40 physically exhausting challenges including sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, half and full marathons, open water endurance swims, cycle races, rowing challenges, assault courses and mountain climbs. One of them will even be running 120 miles in 7 days for her finale as part of the HOPE Tour which passes through Maidenhead on December 21.

The three fundraising are Nicki Petitt (28) from Bracknell, Katie Halliday (24) from Reading and the agency’s MD, Sue Anstiss (46) from Windsor.

So far as a team they have raised £9,300 and are hopeful that this total could reach £12,000 by the end of 2012. The charity they have chosen, HOPEHIV, supports children and communities in Sub Saharan Africa orphaned of affected by HIV or AIDs.

As one of their final challenges on December 10 they will be each rowing the distance of the English Channel (33 km) on indoor rowers at their offices in St Ives Road, Maidenhead.

Commenting on the year, Nicki Petitt said “I can’t believe we’ve just one month left of the12in12! To know that every single step we’ve taken to complete our challenges this year will make such a huge difference to those less fortunate is pretty powerful and motivating stuff. It’s been a tough 12 months - as a team we’re juggling endless hours of training, challenges that test us beyond belief and full time jobs - but ultimately it’s about using who we are to give true hope to the communities in sub-Saharan Africa.”
