Eleven times Paralympic gold medallist David Roberts CBE announces today that he will undertake an extreme triathlon in aid of the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital Charity.

Beginning in Holyhead on 22nd July and finishing five days later at the SWALEC stadium in Cardiff on 26th July 2013, David will endure a gruelling cycle, swim and run. His aim is to raise awareness and vital funds for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales, and the 100,000 vulnerable babies and children each year who need specialist medical care.

David Roberts said; “I truly admire the amazing work the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital for Wales does every day to help sick children and their families. The hospital offers the best possible care in a fantastic and friendly environment, and I am proud to play a part in its development”

‘Dave is an inspiration to us all and his extreme challenge for the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital charity deserves our full support.  Having run a few fundraising marathons myself I don’t envy him but wish him every success.’

Matthew (Matty) Jones, Former Welsh International Footballer
