Chris Rosindale taking on the Marathon Des Sables 30 Jun 2020
In memory of my good friend Del Lee
Chris Rosindale Agency Operations Director for Yopa will be running (walking) the Marathon Des Sables in September 2020 in memory of his very good friend Del Lee.
Sadly Del passed away in January 2019 after a tough battle with cancer leaving behind a wife and three beautiful children.
I will be giving this challenge my all
Chris comments “People keep asking me “why the Des Sables” the answer is simply no other event would do Del’s faultless character justice. Del was the kind of man that made you want to be a better man, a better husband and a better father he genuinely was an amazing human being. I am in no fit state for this challenge but with three months to go until I hit the desert sand one things for sure, I will be giving this challenge my all. I am running with Robert Gibbs another close friend of mine and also a close friend of Del’s”.
