Community News & Views | Surgeon gets on his bike for charity

Consultant urological surgeon Dan Magrill, from Western Sussex Hospitals Foundation Trust and West Sussex Urology LLP, is taking on not one but two local events this year- the Chichester Triathlon in July and the Chichester Half Marathon in October.

 

He will be raising funds for Love Your Hospital to continue their fundraising efforts to boost urology services for local patients and also for UROLINK, a charity to help improve training and facilities in developing parts of Africa.

 

This year the Chichester Triathlon takes place on the weekend of July 13, and Dan will be facing a 600m swim, followed by a 42k bike ride, finished with a 10k run.

 

The Chichester Half Marathon takes place on Sunday, October 6, and includes a mixture of road, cross country and cycle path terrain, taking in the historic sites of Chichester, before heading up the Trundle, and finishing back down Centurion Way.

 

Mr Magrill explained: “As a team of surgeons, we are constantly looking for ways to improve local services and raising funds for this helps reach our goals. Local events are great and it’s always nice to see familiar faces taking part.

 

“We’re also keen to help UROLINK, an organisation that offers training and medical equipment across Africa to provide education and training to surgeons and medical staff in developing areas.”
