Daniel Bagshaw was only 27 when he tragically died of
an undiagnosed heart condition at the end of a triathlon in Hong Kong.
He was educated at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School,
after which he graduated in Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University and went on to become
a lawyer with a top international law firm. But in his spare time he was extremely active, completing many events for a variety of charitable causes, including triathlons, marathons, climbing to Everest base camp and completing gruelling mountain stages of the Tour de France.
He was an exceptional young man with so much
potential, that he was only just beginning to truly fulfil.
If circumstances had been different, he would certainly have continued to have a positive effect on all those around him. This is why his family set up Dan’s Trust;
in order to make a difference in the lives of others in
Dan would have loved this event, leading at the front
and competing with his brothers to achieve the best
time and also delighted to see so many friends and newcomers inspired to take part.

Danny Fullbrook was the chief football writer of the
Daily Star and regular Radio 5 live guest. Forthright in
his opinions, he was well known to fans and players alike. He was a larger than life character, earning himself the nickname ‘Frank and Fearless’. He sadly died at the age
of 40 after an 18-month battle with cancer.
He was passionate, fiercely loyal, noisy and above all, great fun! His warm hearted character was well known and he was especially generous and encouraging to
those starting out. In short, he lived life and enjoyed work fearlessly and with a great passion for every
project and every task.
Because of that, the Fearless Foundation aims to inspire young people to make their own fearless journey through sport, education and training, embodying Danny’s attitude and approach to life to help others achieve their dreams in the way Danny did.
Danny would have thought we were crazy to take part
in this ride. He himself would be at the back, trying to keep up. But he would be so proud that we are challenging ourselves to help others get a leg up in life.
