Well done to Jen for completing the famous Marmotte cyclosportive in July and raising over £1000 for Beat Asthma! The Marmotte covers a distance of 174.4 km (108.4 mi) and with 5,180 m (16,990 ft) of climbing is considered to be one of the hardest of any cyclosportive and comparable to the most challenging high mountain stages of the Tour De France.
Great North Running to Beat Asthma!
Thank you to our Team Beat Asthma Great North Runners!
Mt Toubkal Challenge!
Thank you to Dee, who raised over £800 for BeatAsthma by an incredible effort climbing Mt Toubkal, the highest point in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Read about her adventure below:
I love an adventure and knew signing up to climb Mt Toubkal during December was going to be my biggest challenge yet. As someone who has asthma it was a natural choice for me to raise money for BeatAsthma. Knowing people had donated was the extra push I needed during the final hours walking up to the summit and stopped me giving up (even when I really wanted too). Thanks to everyone that donated and helped raise money for a great cause.

Going to Great Lengths to Beat Asthma!
‘We chose Beat Asthma as over the course of the past few years, Leo had had many trips to A&E, out of hours and hospital because of breathing difficulties and problems with his lungs. In August, he had the worst episode so far while we were away on holiday and, as a result, has been diagnosed with asthma.
Alongside the advice from the hospital and our GP, the information from Beat Asthma has been invaluable and, while we hope that he’ll grow out of it, knowing there is a wealth of information and support available to him as he grows up is incredibly reassuring.’
Leo and has dad raised an incredible £1279 for BeatAsthma!
