Dorchester Sports Centre staff in epic charity challenge
8:55am Friday 6th September 2013 in News
STAFF at Dorchester Sports Centre are taking the plunge this morning at the start of an epic English Channel themed challenge.
The team at the centre will be taking part in a sponsored Mass Channel Relay from 9am, which will see the 20 strong team take on a 21-mile relay swim, a 21-mile relay row and a 21-mile relay run to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Organiser Laura Taylor said: “Many families in Dorset have been supported by this wonderful charity so the staff at the centre wanted to do their bit to fundraise for such a worthwhile cause. “It is quite a challenge we have set ourselves and we thought we could take on 21 miles for each sporting|challenge, the distance it takes to cross the Channel. “We hope local people will support us with sponsorship as well as cheering us on.”
