An article on Chris Cooper. He`s a nutter. He must be to be a mate of mine. But not only that, he`s Villa through and through.
Oh, have I mentioned he is nuts?
Well, he`s doing the following:
- 27 Marathons in all 27 EU capital cities
- Row the channel, cycle 1000 miles to Berlin , run Berlin marathon*
- Cycle 200 miles to Dover, Swim to France, run 125 miles to Brusells
- Warsaw marathon, cycle to Budapest , run Budapest marathon.
*Berlin challenge is split between Macmillan & Help Harry as its a team effort.
Wow... thought my walk to the Kingfisher Centre in Redditch for a muffin and bottle of water was energetic.
In all seriousness, what Chris has done and is still doing for Charity is something to behold.
At the moment he is doing all this for the wonderful charity Macmillan Cancer UK, in memory of his step dad who passed away 3 weeks ago.
Donations page: www.justgiving.com/Endurocoop
And his blog: www.endurocoop.wordpress.com
He is also doing a raffle collection. It currently includes march worn shirts from Premier League Football players, signed Replica shirts from Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo and a few other memorabilia items so far gained - here: Click Here
After meeting Paul Birch the former Aston Villa player, I decided to cycle from Villa Park to Paris for his cause.
Paul passed away, and this inspired me to double the distance and cycle 1000 miles to Vienna for Cancer Care.
Since then, my Step Dad Keith was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in July 2011. After a short but aggressive battle with his, he recently passed away in Katharine House Hospice, Stafford.
In his memory, in the colours of Paul Birch's Aston Villa, I am now attempting a range of endurance challenges to raise money and awareness for Cancer Charities.
27 EU Countries. 27 Marathons.
I am running the Capital City of each EU Country over the next 18 months, which in some months includes 5 marathons.
Please sponsor me, small or large, as every penny will help motivate me every step of the way.
