On 7th October two years ago, Robert Toone had a large tumour removed from between his heart and lung. It was a worrying time but in the end all was well and he’s been fine ever since. To incentivise himself to stay fit and healthy, the day after the operation he impulsively booked onto the Majorca Half Ironman for 2020. Luckily it kept on getting postponed and he is (finally) in some sort of shape to do it, although it will still be a huge challenge for him …... although not quite as hard as David Walsh! It will take place this Saturday 16th October, 2 years and 9 days after his op. He is hoping to raise money for a match funding campaign for Youth 2000. A generous donor has offered to double any donations (up to £17,500) because we need funds to pay salaries to keep this much needed work and ministry going and continue to reach young people from around the UK.
