For Alex Flynn the diagnosis became the beginning of an exciting journey that influences the lives of many, ill and not, people.
What is more uncertain than a health issue? And when uncertainty turns into the certainty of a diagnosis of a “permanent” disease, what happens next? For Alex Flynn the diagnosis became the beginning of an exciting journey that influences the lives of many, ill and not, people.
Alex’s diagnosis became the catalyst in his life for showing people the possibility of creating positive change in the face of adversity. He can be found doing some of the more complex, unexpected and surprising challenges across the planet to raise awareness and hopefully more than 1 million pounds towards vital research to find a cure.
Under the banner of a challenge entitled ‘10MillionMetres’, Alex has completed many marathons, ultra-endurance races, and triathlons.
To quote Sir Ranulph Fiennes, OBE, “Rarely does one hear about such an inspirational and heroic Briton as Alex Flynn. The challenges he has successfully undertaken would be considered seriously hard by anyone’s standards and are, in my view, independently worthy of recognition.”
