Ray Sets Himself a Challenge

Ray Sherry is a fundraiser who set himself a challenge – to run his first half marathon.  

Ray wanted to raise funds for Care & Repair because ..."It's a fantastic service and it really helped my Mum feel more confident about coming home after her hospital stay. I really wanted to help spread the word and support the charity."

“I'd never run that far in my life before, although I have cycled it a hundred times over. There's a big difference between running and cycling - I know because I hate running but love cycling. And therein lies the challenge.

Following his own training regime, Ray completed the Cardiff Half Marathon in 2hrs 30 mins. and raised £400 for Care & Repair. 

And he’s now got the running bug! He’s already entered next year's Cardiff Half and the Newport Marathon in April. As Ray said: “I must be crazy!!! But it's all part of my journey to the  Ironman Wales in Tenby next September”. 

A BIG thank you to Ray for your support and fundraising efforts.
