Katie Henderson was a highly successful swimmer and triathlete who won numerous Age-Group races, took part in the elite British Triathlon Super Series, won an ITU World Age Group medal and achieved a 3rd place medal at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.
Katie was recognised as one of the best swimmers in the sport and she had also been selected as one of four guides for visually impaired triathletes training for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
In 2015, Katie was tragically killed in a multi-vehicle collision whilst travelling to Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire.
Her family and friends have kept Katie's talent, spirit and beauty alive by helping the next generation to embrace the sport she simply adored.
All the funds raised will be used by the Triathlon Trust to organise and deliver free triathlon events for schoolchildren, in particular those who may not normally be introduced to the sport.
In this way, Katie’s legacy lives on.
I am attempting to cycle the height of Everest in one day (that's 8,848m) over a 308km distance. It really is going to be a monster day in the saddle....I hope that you can support me to make the suffering my legs will be going through worthwhile....and help the Triathlon Trust to 'Change Lives Through Triathlon' in Katie's name.
