Christ College Brecon are supporting former pupil and dad of 1, Des Lally as he takes on his next fundraising challenge, the 6633 Arctic Ultra , a 380 mile unassisted foot race into the Arctic Circle to raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes.
In March 2020 Des Lally will take part in the unassisted foot race into the Arctic Circle, finishing on the banks of the Arctic Ocean at Tuktoyaktuk . The race is regarded as the toughest, coldest and windiest ultra-distance foot race in the world where temperatures drop to -40 degrees.
Christ College Brecon along with Lifetime Training, Hills Waste Solutions & OddGods are supporting Des Lally as he prepares to complete this arduous challenge for charity.
In 2019 Christ College Brecon supported Des Lally as he climbed Pen Y Fan 365 times in 365 days, covering over 1500 miles, and held a celebration event upon completion of his efforts that enabled him to raise over £61,000 and untold amounts of awareness for Cancer Research UK & Help for Heroes..
Christ College Head, Gareth Pearson, said: “We feel very honoured to be able to support Des Lally once again as he prepares to undertake such a tough endeavour. Des’ determination and commitment to supporting both Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes is amazing and incredibly admirable.
“As Head of Christ College, I feel very pleased to be able to support an Old Breconian. It really is great to see past pupils going on to do such amazing things. The whole school is behind him and we really wish him all the best as he prepares to take on the challenge next year. We will certainly be following his progress and cheering him on”
