From 28 January to 7 May, endurance athletes John Mergler and Debi Hazelden aim to complete an 'Iron century': 100 Iron triathlons in 100 days. They'll be doubling the current world record for triathlons completed in consecutive days.
Red Cross is committed to #gothedistance to support people as they respond and recover from emergencies. To raise funds for this vital work, Debi and John will go the distance too - swimming, cycling and running a combined total of 33,870 km. That's further than the journey from Sydney to New York and back again.
Red Cross helps people prepare for the impacts of disasters; responds quickly to provide practical assistance and emotional support when emergencies strike; and supports families and communities through the long road to recovery.
Disasters can change someone's life in an instant. So can you. When you make a donation in support of Debi and John, you'll be providing valuable assistance to people affected by emergencies in Australia and further afield.
Support Debi and John as they #gothedistance or rise up to your own fitness challenge.
