- 24th September 2017 a team of 16 of us took part in a Tough Mudder event near London. We all completed all 13 obstacles. It was absolutely crazy! We were all caked in mud from the start it was really tough getting the wheelchair through the mud . Luckily we had 7 strong lads to help. Each obstacle had to be thought about and each one seemed harder and harder especially as we had more and more mud everywhere on us! Really didn’t like it in my eyes and up my nose! An absolutely incredible day spurred on by everyone’s encouragement along the way with other teams and individuals helping. Fantastic atmosphere and great team spirit. For me being able to take part in this awesome event was just so much fun I loved being part of the team. My wheelchair still had mud in all sorts of places even after hosing it down showering it it took days to get clean enough to use and even now we still seem to find reminders!
Our team raised £1,200 for whiz Kidz to help towards buying wheelchairs and mobility aids for young people!
