Laura’s Ironman 70.3
Date: 24th August 2019
My name is Laura Fernandez Alonso and I found out about Amy’s condition via my partner Will Reidy who came across her story online and was truly devastated by it (he has donated multiple times over the course of the last year). I have myself lost one of my best friends a few years ago (age 25) of an unfair stroke and have been fundraising on his name since. Every year, I set myself a new sports challenge in order to raise money for a cause close to my heart or one that I believe can make a difference
I read about Amy’s story and I found it tragic but most importantly incredibly inspiring, especially after seeing all the progress she has made since 2014. I am truly impressed by all the work that The Trust carries out to raise awareness around this issue, the strength and unconditional love. I am honoured to help them raise money and will put all my dedication and strength into the next months of training.
On behalf of Amy’s trust I would be immensely grateful if you could support me in giving Amy a better future by sponsoring me.
Thank you so much – Laura.
