Pete has been a Hammer all his life, a season ticket holder for the past decade and is the embodiment of the true East End spirit; driven, proud yet humble but fiercely determined. He has personal reasons for throwing himself into challenges over the past few years. This is a guy who does like to push his own physical limits. 17 London marathons is not enough for him. Representing GB as a tri-athlete in the seniors category was also a cakewalk. Last year he decided to cycle on an indoor bike at his gym for 24 hours. I think it was around 500 miles has had completed by the end of that one. Then this. I’ll lift Pete’s transcript from his uk.virginmoneygiving.com page (he’s the first link when you put in ‘Peter White’).
I am attempting to walk 100 miles to raise funds for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This is a unique challenge and is something that has been attempted but never done before indoors. JDRF research to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes and provide information for children, adults and parents living with the condition, at all stages from diagnosis and beyond. JDRF give a voice to people with type 1 diabetes and campaign for increased focus on, and funding for, research to find the cure. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
