A Bridlington gym owner is preparing for ‘the biggest challenge of his life” as he hopes to raise £10,000 for Cancer Research and the Candlelighters Children’s Cancer Charity.
Steve Tighe will be taking part in his fifth and final World’s Tough Mudder 2019 event, which will take place in Atlanta, United States of America on 16th November.
“I will be taking part in the 24 hour endurance race for the 5th and final time in loving memory of a great friend and Blast Fitness Gym member, Peave Bellerby, who we recently lost but who engraved his place in our hearts forever.”
With four World Tough Mudder events already under his belt, Steve is under no illusions about how difficult the challenge will be.
“Training is going incredibly well right now…but all that remains is the need for local businesses to please reach out one more time and offer financial support to both get me there, and raise an absolute fortune to help in the fight against this evil disease… Cancer. It is a disease that not only affects, but has taken so many of our loved ones far too early and it is time for Bridlington as a community to strike back.”
Peave, who had a roofing business, was married to Dawn and has two daughters Tawny and Amy. He was a regular member at the Blast Fitness Gym on Brett Street, and was also a popular and well-loved figure around the town. He sadly died of complications arising from cancer at the age of 55 in February this year.
Local goalkeeping coach Gavin Kelly is also organising a memorial charity football match in remembrance of Peave. The event is being held in August at Queensgate Stadium, home of Bridlington Town Football Club.
