Fundraising with CatZero

CatZero invites you to join our team on one of the great fundraising challenges we take part in.  Get fit, raise money towards a fantastic cause, and help young people on the banks of the Humber by supporting CatZero’s innovative youth development programmes. If you are taking part in a sailing challenge, then fundraising with CatZero is the perfect way to raise your donation!

As in previous years, during 2017 the team and other friends of CatZero will be joining in some of the following events:

The Humber Half Marathon

Join members of the CatZero team who will once again be up to the challenge of running the Humber Half Marathon.  Taking in spectacular views from the Humber Bridge on both outwards and return legs of the run, The Humber Bridge Half Marathon is a true test of any runner’s stamina.

Other Fundriasers

Many people come up with their own ideas and events for fundraising, including our very own Danny Watson who during 2016 completed his own unique triathlon, commencing with the London Marathon which he completed in a staggering 3 hours and 21 minutes.  This lead him into the CatZero Cycle Challange in June - cycling 170 miles from Albert Dock in Liverpool to Albert Dock in Hull, before completing the trio by undertaking his biggest challange of swimming the Humber - in less than an hour.

Zane Powles also came up with a spectacular challenge for 2016 which involved biking from Grimsby around all the National Three Peaks; running each Peak; and also running the Yorkshire Three Peaks on the way past then biking back homes to Grimsby.  This was in excess of 1200miles which Zane completed on his own, completely self sufficient - and he camped all the way round, carryingh all the gear!

In 2014 James Britton designed his own Humber Ti Challenge.  James and his family organised the event in memory of Maria Britton, James' wife and mother to his four children, who unfortunately lost her battle with cancer in November 2012.

James and his friends left Hessle car park at 9.00 am on 21st July 2014 to undertake a gruelling triathlon, commencing with a 1.6 miles swim across the Humber Starting before starting their 48 mile cycle at the landing site at Chowder Ness. The team then went through South Ferriby, to Winterton, round through Normanby Park to Gunness and over the Trent through the isle of Axholme. The route then took them across to Goole and Howden through Laxton to Blacktoft and Faxfleet - so far so good - just 6 hours gone.  Fianlly, the 13.4 mile run - starting from Faxfleet and following the trans pennine trail at sign 65, through Brough and back around to the Humber Bridge and finishing where it all started....Hessle Foreshore!!!  The guys took a well deserved recovery at the Country Inn - probably a further 10 hours in there.
