The team at Applied Digital took part in the First of the Summer Triathlon in Holmfirth on Sunday 15th May, to help raise money for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.
We arrived at the Holmfirth Leisure Centre at 8.30am to meet the organisers for a race briefing, and then Jenny took to the pool to start the race, followed by Steve cycling and Andrew running, with our friends and family cheering us on from the sideline!
The Applied team were proud to take part in the triathlon amongst some great athletes and finished at position 88 out of 114 participants, (not bad for our first attempt!)
These are the individual results:
- Jenny Green - swam 400m in 11 minutes 29 seconds
- Steve Sykes - cycled 24km in 1 hour 07 minutes 55 seconds
- Andrew Womersley - ran 5.7km in 29 minutes 20 seconds
Total time = 1 hour 51 minutes 08 seconds (including transition times)
So far, we’ve raised a total of £265 for this amazing charity and the fundraising continues with our bake sale on Friday 17th June, so keep a lookout for that!
The Children's Heart Surgery Fund is a charity providing support for children and adults born with Congenital Heart Defects. The Fund provides valuable equipment, resources and research, as well as a support service for both the children and their families along the way as they did with our Head of Development Andrew Womersley, his wife Keely and their baby son Harris.
