The challenge: 

With support from a teacher at school & friends, collectively know asTeam MAP-NEMALINE (Team MAP-N). We will carry her 'Dream Stone' over water, road & track. 

Meriel shall start the Triathlon by doing her swim challenge in Oxfordshire, the teacher will then courageously cycle 170 miles over many hills to Snowdonia. Together we will find the perfect spot on Snowdon for her 'Dream Stone'.

This is going to take a lot of training! Particularly for Meriel because of her weak muscle condition NEMALINE MYOPATHY, scoliosis and respiratory issues.
