Father and daughter duo Stephan (57) and Chloe Couture (15), otherwise known as ‘Team Ladybugs’, have been building up the miles since 10 July as they set out to complete 26 marathons for 26 charities, including the British Tinnitus Association (BTA), a charity that is close to Stephan’s heart. Tinnitus is a debilitating condition that affects 63,000 adults in Warwickshire alone, and one in eight nationwide.
Stephan and Chloe, from Hurley near Atherstone in Warwickshire, have been up and down the UK this summer completing 5ks, 10ks, triathlons and virtual marathons, to raise awareness and funds for several different charities. Chloe, a daughter of Stephan and a cerebral palsy patient, participates in the races with Stephan. Stephan pushes Chloe’s racing wheelchair.
The father and daughter pair set out to run 26 marathons, a total of 681.2 miles, for 26 charities over the course of the summer and are on track to end on a high with the Virgin Money Virtual London Marathon event on 3 October, having completed 608.9 miles so far.
Stephan shared that “We are pushing the boundaries, but we’re ok and are holding our own.” Chloe keeps asking for more, so we give it. Our motto is “Life’s too short not too
The British Tinnitus Association envisions a world in which no one has tinnitus,” which Stephan supports wholeheartedly. Stephan will be raising funds to support his friends and family, as well as vital funds for research and support for Tinnitus.
The BTA’s Fundraising Officer Jess Pollard commented “We’re delighted that Stephan and Chloe chose our charity as one of the 26 to represent throughout their gruelling challenge. It is amazing to see their dedication and enthusiasm for running. We’ll all be cheering them on for the big day!”
