2 years ago Anita, Annabel and Alex Nicholson were tragically killed in the Sri Lanka terrorist attack on Easter Sunday 2019. The Nicholsons were a big rugby family and with Ben, Anita had already started to help raise money for The Atlas Foundation - a rugby based charity doing so much good in some of the poorest communities in the world. The love of rugby is purely the vehicle to provide safety, education and health support to those who need it most.

By running/walking the 100km over two days (yes that’s over two marathons and will probably take some of us at least 20 hours!) of the Race to the Stones course with a number of good friends, we hope to raise money to support the great work The Atlas Foundation does.

Most of the children who stand to benefit from our fundraising efforts live in Kenya, which is where my Dad was born and raised (and learned his rugby). He would have been a strong and vocal supporter of this endeavour. Just one of many reasons why I am proud to support this wonderful charity.
