Peter Robinson, CEO of Darlington firm Nordic Pioneer, which earlier this year officially adopted St Teresa’s Hospice as one of its favourite charities, has been training hard for the event.
The New York Triathlon will take place on July 8th, and begins with a 1.5 kilometre swim through the Hudson River, followed by a 40 kilometre bike ride along Manhattan’s West Side highway, before finishing with a 10 kilometre run through Central Park.
With just over a week to go, Peter is feeling confident of his chances. To date, he has raised £3,990 of his £5,000 target.
Peter said: “It’s great to be supporting such a worthy cause. My mother was looked after at St Teresa’s 15 years ago; the staff and facilities were excellent then and that incredibly high standard has been maintained over the years, which is one of the reasons my company Nordic Pioneer has the Hospice as its adopted charity.”
