A short video about the Marathon Paddle Challenge by SignHealth

SignHealth is the charity partner of SignVideo, the company I work for. Each year our staff members take on challenges to fundraise for SignHealth who do great work supporting the health and wellbeing of the Deaf community.  I wanted to take part in a challenge to support the work of SignHealth and gave some consideration as to what I could do.  As my passion is canoe slalom I decided to complete a paddling challenge. After some thought I decided upon a paddling the equivalent distance of a marathon, with the excitement of whitewater.  I approached staff at Lee Valley about this and we worked out that to complete the distance of 26 miles I need to complete 42 laps of the lake and the Olympic whitewater course!  I am currently in training for this immense challenge.


Massive thanks to Lee Valley Whitewater Centre who have generously supported me with the challenge, as well as Peak PS for support with kit and Dr Kerry Sissins, Chiropractor for her amazing knowledge and skill at keeping me in good physical shape.
