On the 19th June 2012 Peter Metcalfe a serving firefighter with Tyne & Wear Fire & Rescue Service died from stomach cancer at the age of 35. He had only been diagnosed with the illness 2 weeks earlier. He married his long term girlfriend Angela at the chapel in the Freeman Hospital Newcastle, 2 days before his passing.
In memory of Peter a 4 day multi-endurance event was created. To date the StrongArm Challenges have raised over £100,000. This summer family, friends and fellow firefighters are hoping to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity and If U Care Share Foundation who help families affected by suicide. 

Event details

StrongArm Challenge 2018

This year’s challenge sees the team returning to the lake district in September for another 4 day endurance event:-
Day 1 – Swim the length of Lake Windermere (12 miles)
Day 2 – Climb England's 4 highest peaks
Day 3 – 110 mile cycle ride
Day 4 – Great North Run in fancy Dress

We realise that many of you have sponsored the StrongArm team before and for that we are truly grateful. We find it very hard to yet again ask for sponsorship but please if you can help us raise money for these 2 worthy causes.
