Sarah Appleby: Inspiring Stories from Team Phoenix
Saturday 28th September, 12.00 in the Timothy Taylor’s Tipi Tent
Many women on their cancer journey are lost and alone. They find very little support, but even less desire to confess to their families that they need it for fear of burdening them. Team Phoenix Foundation provides women who have had cancer a chance to regain physical and mental wellbeing through the sport of triathlon. Sarah Appleby, founder of the charity, ensures Team Phoenix provides a place for women who have fallen off the end of treatment and need emotional, mental and physical support. The charity looks forward to cheering on 12 cancer women this season at Hever. None of these women are seasoned athletes.They have followed a free, 6 month support and training programme with social evenings, bi-weekly training with dedicated coaches from Medway Tri and fantastic support from mentors who have already been through the programme. Watch these warriors rise above fear and circumstance and STORM THIS CASTLE!
