Robert Morris will be taking part in Ironman Tenby 2022 to raise funds for the Major Trauma Team who saved his daughters life. In a life-threatening accident, Emmie (2 years old) suffered catastrophic injuries. As well as having multiple broken bones, she was in an induced coma in the Intensive Care Unit where she underwent two surgeries. Emmie has now incredibly made a full recovery, and Robert would like the show his thanks to the Major Trauma Team for their amazing work!

Robert said: “Our little princess is now fighting fit, cheekier than ever and lives to tell the tale for which we are forever grateful.

I have decided to take part in Ironman Tenby 2022, in order to raise as much money as I can for the Major Trauma Team, based in the University Hospital of Wales, within Cardiff and the Vale Health Board. They cared for not only Emmie, but us as a family and they saved our little girl.”

The training for Ironman has now commenced, and Robert is showing his commitment to supporting the Major Trauma Team by learning how to swim, and training to run longer distances.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Robert for this wonderful gesture, and wish him good luck in his training!
