A Weekly (most of the time!) round-up of stories, events and projects coming out of the YesTribe.
Researched and written by Richard Potter.
LUCY BAKER - 500 MILES FOR ROB
After losing her friend Rob Worboys to an undiagnosed heart condition, Lucy Baker has embarked on a series of 500 mile challenges to raise money for Cardiac Risk in the Young. She's completed a 500 mile commute on a single speed bike and is now onto a 500 mile triathlon, after which she'll retrace a 500 mile route which Rob followed during his life (Bedford to Leeds to Sheffield to Edinburgh).
You can find out more about Lucy's adventures on her fundraising page.
TIM PLATTON - THE MILE BUY CLUB
In just under a week, Tim Platton will start a 1000 mile run to raise money for Asthma UK. Tim was diagnosed with asthma as a young boy and, while he's been able to manage his condition, his ability to engage in physical exercise was limited.
He's selling the miles for £2 each: to grab one, visit his fundraising page. Buying miles will help Asthma UK work to stop asthma attacks, support people with asthma and, ultimately, find a cure.
Have you been inspired by any of these stories? Do you have your own to share? We’d love to hear about it. The YesTribe is a community that is free to anyone who is looking to make life less restricted, more enjoyable, more interesting and more memorable. Your story doesn’t need to be an endurance adventure, many of the YesTribe are making films, raising money for good causes and developing the community.
