Billy's Big Challenge

  • Patch Dolan

This February, professional racing driver and double-leg amputee, Billy Monger, undertook a gruelling triathlon inspired challenge for Red Nose Day. Over the course of four days, he battled the elements as well as physical and mental exhaustion, as he set out to walk, kayak and cycle a staggering 140 miles. Along the way, he was supported by family, friends and some very special guests to help spur him on to the finish line. I was asked to go along and document his challenge by Comic Relief. Billy raised over £3 million which will help support a number of life-changing projects both across the UK and around the world, whether it’s tackling mental health stigma, taking action against domestic abuse, providing safety to families who need support, or helping to give children the best start in life. And with the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic increasing demand, the money raised will also reach some of the most vulnerable in society who have been hit hardest by this crisis. #charity #rednoseday #eventphotography #sportsphotography #comicrelief #billymonger #billysbigchallenge #liveevent
