40 brave fundraisers take on Survival of the Fittest

On 8th July 2017, 40 brave fundraisers took part in Survival of the Fittest, raising money to support the Tommy Salisbury Choroideremia Fund.

The 10km route surrounding Wembley Stadium was punctuated with 10 unique and challenging obstacles. This included a water slide, monkey bars, wall climb and many more to test endurance! The team included Tommy Salisbury, mum Emma, dad Paul, sister Amelia and cousin Daniel. Amelia and Daniel will be taking on another challenge next year with the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon.

A fantastic £1,847.50 was raised and this will be used for medical research in finding a cure or treatment for Choroideremia. 

Tommy was diagnosed with choroideremia in 2005. Since then his family and friends have been raising money to support their quest and to date have raised over £500,000.
