A long walk: Picton to Bluff for Cancer Society

About three weeks ago I received a phone call from Emily Murdoch at the Cancer Society.

“Could I please help Tim Adam’s learn more about sports nutrition to help power his walk from Picton to Bluff in his bid to raise funds for Cancer.”

I have to say that it’s been a real pleasure to work with Tim and his wife Vanessa to help them learn more about nutrition and the key nutrients that Tim will need for this endurance event.

How much to eat and drink, where and when and what to have at the end  in order to recover each day…these are some of the things we have worked on.

For example Tim had procured sponsorship for a number of foods before I met him so rather than endorsing the products he is using I have had to work through the label reading information in order to help him know how much,  what to have and when in order to build sustainable energy.

Tim is very focused. He has done heaps of organising for this event and I am thrilled that he has reached his first goal of raising $3000 for Cancer and look forward to watching him power through each day with determination and belief in this great cause.

Lets all get behind Tim and his family and give what we can to a The Cancer Society of New Zealand.

Best wishes Tim from us all
