Breast cancer survivors take on Hever Castle Triathlon

Team Phoenix is a dedicated group of sports professionals, doctors and volunteers, helping breast cancer survivors cross the finish line of a sprint distance triathlon. Like the sport of triathlon, the mission of Team Phoenix is threefold. The Team believes that the mind, body and soul are all affected by the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer and their chosen event this year is Hever Castle Triathlon, (24/25 September) Kent.

Team Phoenix allows women to share, bond and heal the mind without explicitly seeking bespoke help and advice.

At Team Phoenix, women have the support of trained coaches and trainers to focus on their physical capabilities; the body. Participants will start on an exercise regime which will increase their physical fitness and bring back bodily strength post treatment.

“We chose the event at Hever Castle to be our very first Team Phoenix triathlon in the UK and were thrilled to receive their support,” says Sarah Appleby, Founder of Team Phoenix. “As triathletes, we know that crossing the finish line is a unique feeling. Team Phoenix believes that this achievement will touch each and every team member’s soul.”

Team Phoenix provides all equipment, training, entry fees, support and mixers to any participant wanting to take part, and takes applications from all ages, shapes and sizes and would love to help you or someone you care about find her wings.
