Ben Reinhardt, from Crewe, is training hard for a forthcoming '60 at 60' fundraising challenge to mark his 60th birthday. On the day of his birthday - Sunday 21st July 2013 - he aims to swim 60 lengths at Nantwich outdoor swimming pool, cycle 60 km and run for 60 minutes. The retired former Bentley Motors employee is raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research - http://www.beatbloodcancers.org/ - who are the only UK charity solely dedicated to research into blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. His webpage for donations is https://www.justgiving.com/ben-Reinhardt/ and he would appreciate any money for this charity. Ben said, "I can think of easier ways to celebrate my 60th birthday, but on this special day for me I hope doing this will enable more people to continue living. Every penny I raise will contribute to helping the fight to beat blood cancers."
