COMPETITOR STORY – LUCY DAWKINS

A regular look at some of the inspirational stories from some of our amazing DB Maxers……

This week it’s Lucy Dawkins who took part in the Portishead Triathlon with us.

The reason why I took part in this triathalon is because I love a challenge and I’ve never done a triathlon before. I have a fascination in health and fitness because my occupation is a Sport Massage Therapist and I believe it is important to take part variety of different sports so as we use a variety of different muscles as injuries can occur due to muscle overuse.
I am raising money for The Terrence Higgins Trust because I have been volunteering for The Terrence Higgins Trust as a Massage Therapist since 2013 and I’ve seen the decline of services for people with HIV due to lack of funding over the years and I’ve observed personally how physically harrowing having this disease can be.
