Captain Cymru is the alter ego character created by Matthew Evans in 2007 to help raise funds for a number of charities. Since this date Captain Cymru has completed a number of endurance events including 16 Ironman’s, Norseman, Otillo swim run world champs, The MDS and over 70 Marathons. At the same time, raising 100’s of thousands of pounds for multiple charities and causes.
In 2015 Captain Cymru created the November challenge to inspire children and parents to simply get out and run. Over 2000 children have signed up to the programme and raised over £45,000 for Thyroid cancer and Challenge Aid. This include building a school in Kabira, Nairobi to help educate children whom cannot attend traditional schools.
The Captain Cymru Foundation was created in 2017 to simply bring all this activity together and create a powerful springboard to encourage others to do incredible things and along the way have fun and raise vital funds for local, national and International causes.
