Firm takes on gru­elling chal­lenge

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A FINANCIAL firm from Mac­cles­field who took on a phys­i­cal en­durance chal­lenge de­signed by the Royal Marines have raised hun­dreds for East Cheshire Hospice.

Quint Group, based on Cot­tage Street, tack­led the Born Sur­vivor chal­lenge at Capesthorne Hall in Septem­ber, over­com­ing 30 gru­elling hur­dles over a 10k dis­tance.

The six staff who took on the chal­lenge in­cluded man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Mie Ran­som, Scott Forster, Adam Jones, An­drew Mount­ford, Char­lotte Good­win and James Lester. The group man­aged to raise £1,653.49 which has now been given to the hospice.

A spokesman for Quint said: “We are ex­tremely happy to sup­port the lo­cal com­mu­nity, in par­tic­u­lar the ECH, who pro­vide a truly won­der­ful ser­vice to fam­i­lies in the sur­round­ing area.

“We over­came 30 plus gru­elling hur­dles over 10k, with some of our team over­com­ing pho­bias to make it to the fin­ish line.”

The Born Sur­vivor ob­sta­cle course is the brain­child of an ex-Royal Marine Com­mando and Falk­land’s vet­eran. It has run at Capesthorne Hall for the last five years with both 10km and a 42km ver­sion.
