Sandra’s rising to the challenge

SANDRA White is taking on a triathlon challenge this weekend to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care.

Sandra, from Boston, told The Standard: “I lost another close friend to cancer this year and my dad died from the illness four years ago. I just want to do something to help raise money and this event seemed like a really worthwhile cause.

“If I could raise around £300 that would be ideal.”

The women-only event is taking place at Dorney Lake, Windsor on Saturday (July 2).

This venue is being used for rowing during the London Olympics in 2012. The triathlon challenge event comprises an 800m swim, 30.5km cycle ride and a 7.5k run.
