A Burnham-On-Sea double amputee is in training to take part in his most gruelling fundraising challenge yet by trying to complete a 10-mile course and 25 obstacles for charity.
Toby French is taking part in the Tough Mudder Challenge on August 18th in aid of two charities which are close to his heart.
Toby – whose legs are both amputated below the knee – has been attempting unique fitness challenges throughout 2019 and has recently completed the 5km Tough Mudder Challenge.
“I’m now taking on the full 10-mile event and, with just a few weeks until the full event, it will be a lot of hard work!”
“I am taking on this challenge to raise money for two charities which are close to my heart,” says Toby.
“I am raising money for two charities – BARB Search and Rescue, who I volunteer with. We are a completely self funded search and rescue team and rely on donations.”
“The second charity is Alzheimer’s Society. Dementia is destroying our loved ones minds. My mother suffers vascular dementia and this is slowly taking her mind away. The more we raise, the sooner we can rid the world of this horrible disease.”
