In nine days time Dan will be diving into a crater lake in western Uganda to complete an Olympic-length triathlon. I’m glad it’s him and not me – I can barely complete a 5km jog without stopping!
This is Dan’s first triathlon, actually it’s his first ever long-distance race. He will be swimming 1.5km across a crater lake, then jumping on a bike for 40km and cycling through villages and finishing up with a 10km run around the crater lake, at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains.
But he’s not doing all this in vain! He’s doing it for READ for Life. Please show your support for Dan by sponsoring him in the triathlon and making a donation which will go towards our vital literacy work in primary schools in Uganda.
