My name is Charlie Penrose. In December 2013 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. All my initial treatment took place at King’s College Hospital and for their work I am immensely grateful - they reacted with immense speed in both the diagnostic and operative stages and I have them to thank for my recovery and fitness.

To celebrate still being alive, and to show in some small part my immense gratitude to King’s for their work, I am undertaking a series of challenges over the course of 2014 culminating in an Ironman Triathlon at the end of the year. At present these challenges include running a marathon, climbing the 3 Peaks, walking from London to Cornwall, riding fixed gear from London to Brighton and Paris and kayaking the English Channel.

I am seeking both donations to my charity, King’s College Hospital Charity (which can be given via my Just Giving page, www.justgiving.com/charlie-penrose) and direct sponsorship... there is obviously a large cost implication for all these events - equipment, entry fees, training etc. and much as I wish I could foot it alone, I cannot! Over the course of the year I expect to get a good deal of press coverage; I believe this will present an opportunity for any companies or individuals who provide some form of sponsorship to benefit from their investment, as well as fund a good cause AND allow a cancer survivor to celebrate being alive in a diverse, and probably foolish, number of ways!
