Colin Greenwood to take part in triathlon

Radiohead star Colin Greenwood is taking part in a gruelling triathlon in honour of a friend’s daughter who is battling leukaemia. The British rocker will tackle running, cycling and swimming during the race in his native Oxfordshire, England in June (14).
Greenwood is raising money for a charity called Scarlett’s Dragons and admits the cause is close to his heart.
In a post on his page, he writes, “In a moment of madness I’ve agreed to enter a triathlon for my mate Dan’s daughter Scarlett – Sponsor me! x Colin.”
He later adds, “Just got back from 10k (kilometre) stagger around the park – amazed by your kindness and support already! Go Scarlett!!”
The Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Blenheim Palace Triathlon takes place over two days on 7-8 June (14).
Greenwood and his charity team had raised more than $21,085 (£13,178) as WENN went to press.
