Matt, from Matt Bond Signworks has been a supporter of Devon Freewheelers for many years and is a keen athlete who has always had a personal ambition to complete the 100k Ultra Event, the Jurassic Coast 100k Challenge. Matt finally bit the bullet this year and decided to set a target of £1000 in sponsorship for the charity.
Matt crossed the line in 26th position out of the 90 athletes who decided to attempt the 100k in just under 19hrs. "Something I will surely remember forever. There were highs and lows... but mostly highs. I'm feeling a bit bruised this morning as expected, the odd blister on my feet" say Matt.
"It was an experience that I can look back on with so many great memories. I think the majority of people didn't like the section from Lyme to Seaton, the undercliffs. This has been one of my favourites throughout my training and yesterday.
Matt's efforts have paid dividends. He has surpassed his £1,000 target and more donations are still coming in. Local business in Budleigh Salterton, DKN Hair, have had a collection box on their reception desk in their Salon.
Daniel Neaves, who has previously held his own Devon Freewheelers Fundraisng events was delighted to hand over the donations from his clients to Matt, wishing him all the best in his challenge.
