The sixteen year old from Ashingdon, is planning to “Splash, Mash and Dash” for Charity as he takes on a 3km swim, 80km bike ride and a 20km run this summer.
Tom, who is a student a SEEVIC College, said: “I decided to do this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, because I know people that have and are currently suffering from Cancer. It’s an awful thing to have, but when your a child, or a teenager, you’re supposed to be having some of the best days of your life. That’s what TCT do, they make life more normal for Teenage Cancer sufferers. Secondly, I wanted a personal challenge, I’ve done charity swims and bike rides before, but I wanted a real challenge, and this is going to be a real challenge”
