Foster-a-thon Duathlon Team Keep Their Cool for The Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Seven of our employees took part in an epic challenge to cycle and run to their sister company Gamko, based in Etten-Leur, The Netherlands and raised around £1,100 for the unit. The journey of 127 miles was carried out as a duathlon with each of the team completing a 54 mile cycle ride, along with a 23 mile run over nearly 15 hours.

he team left King’s Lynn, running and riding the 75 miles to Harwich Port, where they caught the overnight ferry to Holland and then finished the 52 miles by bike to Gamko. The seven members, Gemma Morley, Paddy Thompson, Kevin Piggott, Dave Ward, Jason Stone, Steve Mickleburgh and Pete Waterman represented a cross section of departments at Foster and battled the warm weather, severe traffic and a puncture to reach their destination.

Chris Faull from Foster Refrigerator who organised the event said: ‘As a team, we wanted to raise money for the Breast Cancer Unit at our local hospital and designed the duathlon. We’ve been training hard and competed in other events leading up to it to help us prepare. We work really closely with Gamko, so it’s great to be able to visit the team there – even if it is a slight unusual way to travel! We’re sure the money will help the unit, and no doubt we’ll come up with another crazy idea soon enough to raise even more!’
