Anderson Financial Management hosted “An evening with Nick Gracie, Adventure Sport World Champion” as part of our sponsorship of the Penny Brohn UK Bristol 10K team.
This was a one off, special event where Nick gave us a passionate insight into his life as Captain of the GodZone Adventure Racing World Champions. The GodZone team have been British Champions since 2005 and in 2009 were crowned Adventure Racing World Champions, the only British team to achieve this. In 2014 the team became European Adventure Racing Champions and successfully defended the title in 2015.
Nick has been adventure racing, endurance running and cycling for the last 18 years. He has successfully completed 39 marathons, including The Marathon Des Sables, The Lakeland 100 and the infamous Berkley 100 mile race in the USA.
The event perfectly showcased the Anderson Financial Management and Penny Brohn Charity Partnership and the theme of endurance and support helped demonstrate the mental and physical stamina required when battling, not only, a multi-terrain adventure race, but also when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
We are very grateful to Nick Gracie for his inspiring and engaging presentation.
It was an atmospheric evening enjoyed by all, raising awareness about the charity Penny Brohn UK and The Great Bristol 10K. We are delighted that the event raised £716.00 and all proceeds from this event will support Penny Brohn UK and the weekly Treatment Support Clinic for men and women undergoing cancer treatment in the South West.
