Even though i’m blind…I didn’t see this one coming! 😀
As a child i remember watching ‘Eric the Bananaman’ cartoons…I really didn’t think i would ever make the transformation too! 🤣 But when i did…It was fantastic, and hearing the responses from the runners etc was heart warming for me. I didn’t know making so much noise would be so encouraging and inspiring for the runners! 💪🏼
1st Bananaman Appearance…
Yay!! I changed into “Bananaman” today in Covent Garden for the first ever #wcrftakeover for World Cancer Research Fund. My lovely Wife Sarah, Christine, Anita, Mark, Maria & I had a great day: thank you so much to everyone who donated or stopped by to say hi! Go to wcrf-uk.org to stay up to date on their fantastic work! 😎

As a Cancer Prevention charity we were also giving away Bananas and sharing some great Banana facts as they help reduce your Cancer risk! I love Bananas…..So here are a few random facts:
🍌 1. Are energy boosters
The natural sugars found in bananas (sucrose, fructose, and glucose) combined with fiber and potassium make it an energy-boosting snack. In addition, its levels of serotonin and dopamine improve antioxidant capacity and help with of oxidative stress, enhancing performance overall. So the next time you plan an extreme workout session, remember to eat two bananas before your workout.
🍌 2. Is useful for treating anemia
People who suffer from anemia need to ingest great amounts of iron which stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood. Bananas are not only a rich source of iron they also contain a high amounts of vitamin C which increases the absorption of iron. So if you suffer from anemia, you should consider including bananas in their diet.
🍌 3. Bananas float on water!
Please add any more Banana facts in the comments section below…..I’d love to hear more! 😎
2nd Bananaman Appearance…
Wow….Bananaman is back….I really enjoyed transforming into the charity superhero again and cheering on the excellent runners at the Richmond Half Marathon for World Cancer Research Fund UK! It was a fantastic day out with the team showing our appreciation for all of the wonderful fundraisers!
With only 27 days to go until my Tough Mudder and needing all of the cheering i can get…..I’ll see if i’m still laughing, lol. 😎
Still waiting for a 3rd appearance?! 😀
