Treherbert, Treorchy, Ystrad, Cambrian Welfare, Penygraig before returning to Pontypridd where there will be a celebration BBQ event for all the competitors and their families and friends.
Phil Thomas and his daughter Laura were inspired to help Richard raise funds after following Richard’s record setting 737 Challenge, Phil stated; “Everyone we speak with agree Richards' 737 achievement is astounding and awe-inspiring. We have all been captivated by Richards' journey, including his selfless fundraising efforts for a wonderful charity in Marie Curie. Laura and myself are truly delighted and humbled that Richard is entering the event. His presence will of course have a huge influence on Ten2Ten's success. Inspired by his courage and touched by his humility, we plan to make tomorrow a day to celebrate Richards' amazing achievement”.
