SIV venues to host charity challenge

CHAIRMAN of the Sheffield City Trust group David Grey is taking on a special fundraising challenge, which will see him tackle 60 sports over six days in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
David, 60, will try his hand at a huge range of sports at SIV venues across the city including curling, diving, wheelchair basketball, boccia, tea dancing, cheerleading and indoor rowing.
He said: “The Survive the 60 challenge is certainly quite daunting but I am ready to try my hand at all of the different sports – I like to think I’ll be the first ever ‘hexaconathlete’.
“It’s also a testament to the fantastic facilities and diverse range of activities that SIV offer the Sheffield community. I feel very privileged to have more than 60 sports available to me across the city.”
The challenge forms part of a wider campaign, the 60/600 Challenge, which is the brainchild of Julie Brailey, wife of former SIV CEO, Steve. For her 60th birthday, Julie decided that rather than throwing a party, she would create an initiative to raise money for a cause close to her heart, the Alzheimer’s Society, and ask 60 people to raise at least £600 for the charity.
David added: “Julie Brailey has created such a unique and inspiring initiative to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and can’t wait to contribute to the 60/600.”
