He talked about the charity aspect in all the videos I saw and it was a major part of the motivation for doing it from the very beginning. I recon he knew it was right on the edge of what was feasible for him, he even talked about hitting some disappointing numbers in the run up and his nationals were a disaster. I’ve almost got more respect for him giving it a wholehearted go, even if he wasn’t certain he could do it. And kudos to his sponsors for supporting him and a good cause.
Maybe just donate and cheer up a little?
