Sponsored event for Mowat Wilson Syndrome

(Team members - Hayley Noon, Rosie Laker, Marie Trapp, Alison Smith and Sue Hughes)

It’s amazing isn’t it….the lengths we will all go to, to raise money for a worthwhile cause?! But this weekend our team learnt that when the going gets tough…keep thinking of that worthwhile cause and it’s enough to keep you going!

On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September 2006 our team conquered the gruelling, hilly, 70 mile, Round The Island Tour of the Isle of Wight. Very sadly, we ventured out one man down, as Sue Hughes broke her thumb on a training cycle just days before our departure!

All the elements were against us as we battled our way through persistent rain, gale force winds and hazardous dense fog!!…”Freak weather for this time of year” we were told by the locals…..typical! Ever the optimist, I like to think the severe weather conditions just added character to the weekend!

Sporting our bright yellow MWS t-shirts (sponsored by Exeter Joinery) we drew plenty of attention to ourselves, which gave us lots of opportunity to tell people about MW Syndrome…whilst whipping up a few more donations along the way!

We hope to have raised in excess of £650 for MWSSG this weekend…and had fun whilst doing it!
