Tough Mudder 2023

So, we did a thing on Sunday…

As you will all probably know, Jodi, Nadeem and Kim all took part in the 5k Manchester Tough Mudder Team Fundraising Event. (We all have a few aches/pains, and war wounds to prove it!) This was in aid of Mind; the mental health charity dedicated to supporting mental health across England & Wales. Something that is very close to our hearts.

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. Mind provides support and advice, ensuring no one faces a mental health problem alone – Home – Mind

A HUGE THANK YOU!!! to all of you who donated to this great cause, – it’s very much appreciated, and will ensure that anyone experiencing a mental health problem receives the support and respect they deserve.

So far, we have managed to raise £680 towards our £900 target, but we still have a few more weeks to collect more valuable donations, so if you’d like to donate to this worthwhile cause, please use the below links. (at bottom of email)

One inspiring takeaway from the day was the amazing support and teamwork that was involved, including that from fellow Tough Mudders- complete strangers lending a hand, shoulders, knee, and neck, (sometimes someone’s head – I’ll say no more!) to ensure everyone that took part was never left out, encouraged by the knowledge that we were all in a perfect position to support people in challenging circumstances. We all definitely stepped outside of our comfort zone, and I’m sure we all lost our dignity at least once during the course!

From the highs of scaling the 40ft Mudderhorn pyramid, diving into Artic Enema, crawling on our hands and knees through “Cry Baby” whilst being blasted with the Tough Mudder tear gas blend, being taken out by Electroshock Therapy, pulling ourselves along a 48-foot cage of water with only 4” to breathe, and harnessing the power of human engineering with fellow Tough Mudders in “Pyramid Scheme” to climb over a slick 15ft wall. (Not to mention all the Mud!!!)

Here’s a few unofficial captures from the day!
