The date is set.
On the 9th of September, it WILL happen.
Nine members of the Rawcliffe & Co family [and Danni Harrison] are teaming up with Leonard Curtis to take on the infamous Tough Mudder Challenge-
“a 10 mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your strength, stamina and mental grit.’”
“With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it’s a challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.”
Names of the actual obstacles include ‘The Arctic Enema’, ‘The Birth Canal’ and ‘Electroshock Therapy.’ All of which, we think you’ll agree, sound deeply unpleasant. But our fearless squad of wannabe Legionaires [that’s the name for people who have survived-sorry, completed the course] are more than up to the challenge and have been training hard for this momentous feat. Well, Adam says he’s been jogging and Abdul’s played Call of Duty so that’s kind of the same thing.
But this endeavour is more than just an exercise in extreme team building. The team are going to raise money for an amazing cause- namely the Play Inclusion Project;
“Play Inclusion Project is a local charity based in Fleetwood that delivers weekly activities including youth clubs and ten pin bowling sessions for children and young people with disabilities, we also deliver Activity Clubs during school holidays…The money raised will be used to buy much needed resources including an Ipad that will be used as a communication aid for those with difficulties communicating and sensory toys.”
We would love all of our friends, associates and family to support our plucky band of warriors and help raise as much as we can for the PIP Project. You can do this online by following this link..
