CBS News London Tri to Remember
Monday, 12 June 2017 Written by Rory Peck Trust

Ten news teams will be swimming, running and cycling in memory of their colleagues.

CBS News will be taking part in the London triathlon next month to honour colleagues Paul Douglas and James Brolan who were killed in Iraq in 2006.

"It’s hard to believe that it’s been 11 years since Paul and James were killed in Baghdad.” says bureau chief Andy Clarke. “When they died we said we’d never forget them. To honour that pledge CBS News London is entering 10 teams in the London Triathlon on Saturday 22 July. We will swim, pedal and run to remember the boys and raise money for the only charity in the world that cares for freelance journalists – the Rory Peck Trust."


Each team will swim 750m, cycle 20km and run 5k with the aim of raising £10,000 for the Trust’s work.
 
"Andy and the CBS team never cease to amaze me", says Tina Carr, Director of the Trust. "The unwavering support they have shown to honouring Paul and James' memory remains as strong as ever. That they can do so whilst benefiting other journalists and their families in need makes their efforts even more special. This year I am happy that CBS have attracted new sponsors LiveU and Hiscox - what a welcome addition to the team!"

To date, CBS have raised almost £3,500 through their JustGiving page. Please give as much as you can to help them to reach their target!
