Davina McCall heading to Cumbria on Sunday
Updated 5:25pm Thursday 6th February 2014 in News
Sport Relief is calling on locals to come out and show their support for Davina McCall as she tackles the landscape of Cumbria.
The BT Sport Relief challenge: Davina Beyond Breaking Point is a seven day ordeal which will see the presenter attempt to run, swim and cycle over 500 miles from Edinburgh to London – entirely under her own steam.
On Sunday (9) Davina will pass through:
• Great Langdale
• Skelwith Bridge
Speaking ahead of her back-breaking journey, Davina said: “My Sport Relief challenge is like an Iron Man on steroids. I have to propel myself without an engine from Edinburgh to London! My head is in the game, I am focused, and I’m going to do it.”
But she’ll need the public’s help along the way to help her power through the wind and rain. Sport Relief is calling for people along the route to brave the weather, come out and keep her going by cheering her along.
Davina’s challenge is all about girl power. She’ll be joined by famous female friends along the route and will be spurred along by her ultimate goal of helping projects that work to help women.
In many developing countries, simply being born female can mean a lifetime of added dangers and challenges, and money raised from the challenge will be spent to help change the lives of thousands of women and girls in Kenya as well as transform lives in the UK and around the world.
