Pushing them to the brink of their strength and endurance, David Lilley and Lizzie Bennett will embark their first triathlon challenge in aid of Prevent Breast Cancer. On August 6th, our courageous colleagues will participate in the London Triathlon, one of London’s largest annual sporting events.

David, Lizzie, and their teammate Jess will join forces with another 10,000 athletes. Together, they will conquer a breath-taking 1.5k open water swim, pedal their way across 40k, passing by iconic London landmarks, and cap it all off with an epic 10k run. Their aim is to complete the trial within 2h 30m.

But their aspirations reach even higher than mere completion; they have set their sights on securing a spot in the top 5 finishers.

David Lilley was keen to get involved ‘I am taking part in this event as it combines my love of sport, and the need to get involved once more with a great charitable cause. The London triathlon fits the bill!’ and Lizzie Bennett shared her reasons for taking part in the challenge ‘The London Triathlon is a great motivator to get back in the pool and raise money for Prevent’

Alliotts stands firmly behind the remarkable charity, Prevent Breast Cancer, which funds ground-breaking research in the realm of breast cancer prediction and prevention. This remarkable nationwide charity, advocates for early detection through screening.

If you would like to help our team towards their ambitious fundraising goal of £1,000, please visit the dedicated JustGiving page.

And if you’re around on the day, do join us in cheering on the Alliotts’ team.
