Jane Hartley, High Sheriff of Cornwall, cycled 90 miles, swam 1.5 miles and ran 5.5 miles from Torpoint to Land’s End to raise money for her new fund. Jane completed her ultra-triathlon in just 12 hours.

Jane has launched a fund introducing sport and outdoor activity to young people with mental health issues and has taken on a challenge to attempt eight sports she has never tried before to raise funds during her shrieval year.

1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year:

Jane said “Cycling, swimming and running from Torpoint to Lands End - the entire length of the south coast of Cornwall - was a challenge I will never forget.  That's not to say that my sporting goals for this year are behind me. I pledged to try eight new sports during my year in office and I still have four to go. So far, I have tried my hand at wheelchair tennis, fencing, gig rowing and a biathlon. Next up, tag rugby!”

Jane’s aim is to raise £50,000 and offered match funding for all the donations: “I pledge to match fund every penny you give. Let’s make a difference together!”
