Ollie, aged 9, was treated to a special day in Osterley, organised by our friends at Sky, in conjunction with Team Sky.
Ollie’s story is a remarkable one.
His mum, Yvette, was sadly diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2017. Surgery followed and with ongoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy planned, unfortunately the prognosis is not good.
Inspired by his inspirational and courageous mum, Ollie set about raising awareness of this brutal illness - with the idea of competing in the Kids Dinton Duathlon, in aid of The Brain Tumour Charity, who fund medical research and give support to people affected by brain tumours.
Ollie’s target was to run 2km, cycle 6km and run 800m - a remarkable goal for such a young boy - with the aim of raising £1,000 for the charity.
On June 9th, not only did Ollie complete his duathlon, he smashed his fundraising target, with the current total eclipsing £3,300!
Ollie’s story fed back into Sky and just a few weeks later, he and his family - mum Yvette, dad Mark and brother Callum - were guests of Sky at their headquarters in Osterley.
