Super effort everyone. Keep digging deep!
Our inspirational CEO, Dr Emma Egging, is taking on her own JET10 challenge in 2021, to shine a spotlight on the vital work that we do in our 10th anniversary year. Emma's 10 events began with a gruelling Grantham Canal Ultramarathon on April 18th, and will culminate in the London Marathon in October. Her next challenge is a 2.5 mile swim along Crummock Water in the Lake District, a gruelling event she’s undertaking with Red Arrows OC, Wg Cdr David ‘Monty’ Montenegro, and her sister-in-law Katie Poulter who has been working as a frontline NHS nurse throughout the pandemic. The furthest Emma has swum in training is 1-mile, so to more-than double this distance on 17th July represents a huge personal challenge. Each event she is undertaking represents a personal challenge to Emma, and she needs your support more than ever. EMMA'S EVENTS 1. Grantham Canal 33-mile ultramarathon (April 18th) 2.
