Fundraisers take on disability triathlon in Rwanda

Two friends are travelling to Rwanda on a fundraising mission that will see them taking part in a triathlon with a difference.

Douglas Flynn & Patrick Jenkinson aim to complete two marathons, one blindfolded, the other in a wheelchair, plus a 2km swim without using their legs.

The pair aim to raise £20,000 for projects in Africa and highlight the struggles faced by those with disabilities in the region.

They also plan to donate their wheelchairs to the Rwandan Paralympic Committee.
