Stephen Bate has now completed his marathon of various events and challenges, all raising vital funds for the Gary Parkinson Trust Fund.
His efforts concluded with the Salford Triathlon on Sunday 26th July, with Ste completing the course in a fraction over three hours.
The 26 different challenges included Marathons, half Marathons 10K runs, Triathlons, Swims and gruelling obstacle courses similar to Tough Mudder.
Ste has completed the challenge in an epic 11 months, and has so far raised well over £1,000 for the Gary Parkinson Trust. We urge everybody who has sponsored Ste to come forward with thier donations and help him raise a record amount for the Trust.
Gary said, "Ste has come along way from the lad that I would pick up from football with my son Luke. #Challenge26 is a tremendous achievement and he should be extremley proud of what he has achieved regardless of how much he raises for my Trust.
"A big thankyou goes to Ste's girlfriend Rachel, who has spent endless hours in all weather conditions, supporting Ste at his #Challenge26 event's. We hope you enjoyed the champagne!
"Finally thankyou to all of you who have all donated, and well done Ste, everybody at the Gary Parkinson Trust is very proud of your achievemnts!"
