Mr Geoff Chiu, Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, has completed two triathlons in two weeks to raise funds for Saving Faces!
Due to the cancellations on the Chateau Chantilly Triathlon and the Tour De Manchester, Mr Chiu took part in the Boundary Park Triathlon on the 13th September 2020 and the Hever Castle Triathlon on the 26th September 2020.
In both events, Mr Chiu found the run the most difficult part. He had to swim in waters as low as 12 degrees at Hever Castle, which resulted in the swim being cut short from 1.5km to 800m.
Even though the events were both challenging he enjoyed his time in two beautiful countryside’s.
With all his hard work and determination, Mr Chiu completed the Boundary Park Triathlon (1km Swim, 55km Cycle, 10km Run) in 3 hrs 19mins and Hever Castle Triathlon (800m Swim, 40km cycle, 10km run) in 2hrs 47mins.
We are incredibly grateful to Mr Chiu for taking on these challenges and to his supporters for giving generously. The total amount raised so far is over £500.
Geoff Chiu will be completing the Hever Castle Triathlon on the 27th September for Saving Faces. The Triathlon consists of a 1.5km swim, a 45km cycle and a 10km run.
Geoff is a Consultant in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at East Lancashire Hospitals Trust and Royal Bolton Hospital and looks after the faces and jaws of people in East Lancashire and Bolton.
Geoff has chosen to raise money for Saving Faces because of our research into enhancing patient care and recovery for patients who have had surgery to their face and mouth.
