David from Wales has been inspired by son Caleb to push his physical fitness to new levels and has completed a number of new fundraising challenges, with the support of his family.

What fundraising have you been up to and what has the response been?

I have done the 100 km Cotswold Way Challenge, got cold and wet in a Porthcawl Christmas Day swim and done my first ever cycle race the London Ride 100.

What motivates you to do all of this?

My son Caleb has TSC and I want to do as much as I can to improve awareness and assist in research with the hope that one day there will be a cure.

Any advice for people who want to support the TSA but don’t know how to get started?  

There is a great sense of achievement when finishing a challenge and raising money for those effected by TSC. I am not a cyclist and have never walked a great distance but if you put in the hours it all pays off in the end.
