SEAN JUDKINS is a New Zealander who settled in Mallorca in 2007 and is about to undertake a massive two-day challenge to raise funds for Cancer Support Mallorca.
He has imported the concept of a two-day marathon from his homeland and The Mallorca Odyssey, will see him running (21km), cycling (102 km) and kayaking (17km) around the island on April 17 and 18.
Sean is a teacher at Agora Portals and has got his students involved in producing a special website and he is known throughout Mallorca sporting circles as a tremendous supporter and coach of various rugby teams.
He is married to Anita with three teenage children and six years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer which she fought and recovered from but at the time, the family obtained support from Cancer Support Mallorca and this is his way of thanking them and raising awareness against the disease that can hit one person in two.
It’s not a race, its a non-competitive adventure for those who want to do something positive and raise money to help the fight against cancer.
Sean will be leading the activity but with 10 stages over the two days all are welcome to take part even if it is only for a few stages.
To find out how to donate or participate visit the Mallorca Odyssey Facebook page.
