Avalon Aero were invited to take part in the Aviation Ironman Challenge this month in aid of Know Dementia, a small but thoroughly worthwhile charity close to the events organisers, Tailored Aviation. The first of what is hoped will be annual event involved a 5km run (or brisk walk/ stagger/ slide) through an army style assault course, followed by a 200m lake swim and topped off with a 5km cross country bike ride. Avalon employees Chris and Lisa Glancey, along with honorary employee Martin Chappell, took up the challenge and despite a number of bumps, bruises, cuts and sprains completed the course and lived to tell the tale.
Thanks to everyones generosity a total of £855.50 was raised, a spectacular amount. Training for next year’s event starts now!
