The first thing you notice about Richard is his infectious enthusiasm and seamlessly boundless appetite for getting the most out of life, to experience new things. Recently he`s supported the BT 1000 Mile bike ride, answered phones for Comic Relief and Children in Need, represented CS in a football tournament at the Emirates and competed in an Olympic triathlon. Due to this drive, myself and others have joined some of these events when we normally would say within our comfort zones. Richard`s last challenge was a 100k charity walk from London to Brighton in 24 hours. With 20km still to go it appeared he would not be able to finish, however he dug deep and pushed himself and the rest of the team to the end. It`s impossible for Richard`s drive not to rub off on you and he`d be very worthy of the honour of Olympic torchbearer.
