Support Shay's triathlon

14 May 2021

Fundraising superstar Shay O’Grady is partway through another charitable challenge on behalf of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The young Owl completed the first part of his triathlon by walking 45 miles from Hillsborough to Pride Park ahead of our final day clash with Derby County on Saturday 8 May.

This weekend, the 10-year-old will ride his bike the opposite way, starting from Pride Park before returning to S6.

Shay has also been completing the swimming element of the triathlon in stages and has 4,000 metres to go to reach the 20,000-metre total.

He has been supported by friends, and fellow Wednesdayites, Luke and Holly Wilks throughout his latest charitable endeavor.

The youngster has raised over £12,500 so far, with all funds helping Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice support children and their families.

One of the people cared for by Bluebell Wood is Shay’s cousin, Evie-Mae, and she serves as his inspiration throughout his regular challenges.

Since Shay began his fundraising, he has raised over £34,000 for the charity!

Great work, as ever, Shay!
