Project Description


p1030818-540x272Laura was a client and friend of mine and many, who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour (Terry). Since the emergence of Terry, many of Laura’s goals, challenges and ambitions became a little tougher.

However, Laura being the legend she is,.. is by far one of the most determined lasses who will take on pretty much any challenge, be it fitness or life-changing, and still have you in fits of laughter no matter how tough the going gets!

Adding Terry into her life equation, Laura formed a team, Tame Terry from a collective of colleagues in UK Sport, close friends and myself in which we embarked on a range of fitness challenges to raise money for charity and support her on her journey and battle against Terry.

Challenges that Team Taming Terry included:

  • The National 3 Peaks Challenge,p1030893-16x9crop
  • Yorkshire Peaks Challenge,
  • Royal Parks Runs
  • London 2 Brighton Bike Ride 30th September 2012.
  • Tunnel 2 Towers run (London) – July 2012.
  • Tunnel 2 Towers Run (New York).
  • The London Marathon.
  • Cake Bakes.
  • 100 Mile Walks.

Laura has surpassed the challenge of terry and to date has gone on to raise over £10,000 for The National Brain Appeal, of which Elliot managed to raise £595 in a one week personal training challenge. All proceeds were donated from training as many people as possible for just £10 or £20. She continues to put teams together each year to take on more challenges
