Gettin’ Down & Dirty! (and Up)
This month Helen, our International Business Manager completed a gruelling Tough Mudder Challenge running with partner Dave and friend Jim in aid of Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital. Whilst it’s not a local hospital to us here in Manchester, it is a flagship centre for cardiac problems with patients coming from as far afield as the Isle of Wight for treatment. As this hospital is funded by charitable donations, every penny counts so she asked people to dig deep!
Helen recalled ‘When we arrived, the weather was pretty hideous and made the course all the harder and of course, really slippy. I landed flat on my face at one point! The obstacles were very much out of my comfort zone, with 2 approx.. 15 feet high walls. I just stood at the bottom and thought how????
There was bags of teamwork and camaraderie and everyone just spurred each other on. It was all very well organised and you even got a bottle of cider at the end! Despite the bruises, we loved every minute – even planning to do it next year. Bex from Datesand is game so will try to get a Datesand team together. Any takers from elsewhere?’
