On Saturday 11 March, On-call Firefighter Shane Kittner from Ross-on-Wye Fire Station took on the mammoth challenge of completing 100km in one day through various physical challenges to raise awareness of mental health and raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity and Mind.

Shane started with a 10km run followed by a 2km row and 20km swim at Halo Leisure.

He then walked 8km through the town in full fire kit and ended with a 60km cycle.

Shane completed the 100km in just under 11-and-a-half hours and has so far raised more than £2,000 for his charities.

Colleagues from Ross and Fownhope, alongside the On-call Engagement Team, supported Shane throughout the day.

He said beforehand: “I am doing a charity event to raise money for Mind and The Fire Fighters Charity.

“Although I have never personally suffered from mental health issues, members of my family and many of my friends have experienced it in some form or another.

“I wanted to help raise awareness and donate to help support people in similar positions.”
