Widow’s 100 a Day challenge

1 min read

A woman whose husband died of a brain tumour is among those limbering up for our brand-new 100 a Day Your Way in November challenge. 

Kristie Tribe and her best friend, Raynor Clarke, have signed up to the challenge, which requires participants to complete either 100 squats, 100 star jumps, 100 sit ups, 100 push ups, 100 seconds of a plank, or a combination of all five exercises, each day in November. They are planning to do a mixture of star jumps and squats and will be joined by Kristie’s 10-year-old son, Nicholas, for some of the challenge. 

It's inspired by Kristie’s “kind-hearted, hard-working and loving” husband, Jason, who was diagnosed with a glioblastoma (GBM) in December 2020. Jason’s tumour was inoperable, but he was given six weeks of combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy followed by further chemo. 

Sadly, Jason died in June 2022, at the age of 52. 

Kristie (pictured with Jason and Raynor) said: “It’s going to be hard but I’m going to give it my best shot because I really want to do it in my husband’s memory. 

“I do try to exercise most days but I’m a bit worried about how hardcore this is going to be. Still, challenging myself is the least I can do to try and raise awareness of this devastating disease.” 

She added: “Jason always said he couldn’t understand why there had been so many advances for other cancers and yet nothing for brain tumours, which are still being treated like they were in the 70s, when without your brain you’re nothing.”
