Pritchard’s £100,000 challenge will help children at Rhiwbina’s Greenhill Special School

The children at Rhiwbina’s Greenhill special school will be among those to benefit from an amazing challenge being undertaken by Matthew Pritchard, co-creator of TV stunt show Dirty Sanchez.

Pritchard is attempting to complete 30 Half Ironman triathlons in 30 days. The challenge started on St Davids Day, March 1st, and will finish in Cardiff on March 30th, his 43rd birthday.

A half ironman involves swimming 1.2 miles, cycling 56 miles, and running a half marathon (13.1 miles). That’s more than 70 miles a day – every day for 30 days!

The aim of the challenge is to raise £100,000 for four great causes – Friends of Greenhill School, Shelter Cymru, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and Ty Hafan.

Friends of Greenhill is a charity that supports children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Many of the children come from deprived backgrounds and have suffered severe trauma during their childhood years.

The funds raised from the charity will help to provide much needed educational resources and outdoor educational trips for the pupils who attend Greenhill special school

Matthew Pritchard, aka ”Pritchard” or “Pritch”, was founder and co-creator of the popular MTV series Dirty Sanchez which came to light from the success of their video Pritchard vs Dainton. Following the success of the series, he went on to star in several more TV shows including  Balls of Steel, Wrecked & Sanchez Gets High.

In recent years Pritch has turned his hand to many extreme challenges to raise money for a variety of worthy causes, which has ultimately led to the creation of Pritchard’s £100,000 Challenge.
