THE SUPER HERO: Pete Lloyd, otherwise known as his superhero alias #Petebones will be completing the 20km challenge in a racing wheelchair on rollers in his back garden.
Pete was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in his left femur in 2012 and in 2017, he became a full left leg amputee.
SUPER POWER: #SuperBones. I have fewer bones than many but the ones I have left are stronger than ever and when I do wear my Prosthetic, I’m part Robot too!!
CHOSEN CHARITY: Pete took up wheelchair racing in 2018 to raise awareness for Bone Cancer Research Trust, racing with Stockport Wheelchair Racing. He completed the Manchester Marathon in 2019 and raised over £2,000 for them. Now he is hoping to take on bigger events and continue raising funds and awareness for Bone Cancer Research Trust and Stockport Wheelchair Racing.
MOTIVATION: Pete has said “taking part in the SuperheroTri is a highlight of the year, having such an inclusive event is just brilliant, and to be part of it is just a massive high. I love watching other competitors and how much a challenge like this means to them and the joy it brings and the amount of charities that benefit”
We will be supporting you all the way #Petebones
