Staff get muddy for cause

Wilmslow Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

STAFF at The In­de­pen­dent Com­mis­sioner’s Of­fice in Wilm­slow will be tack­ling a mil­i­tary style ob­sta­cle course to raise money for The Chil­dren’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT).

Eleven mem­bers of staff will be en­dur­ing the 10km Born Sur­vivor race across the rugged and muddy ter­rain of the Lake Dis­trict.

And those tak­ing on the chal­lenge will cer­tainly be put through their paces as the de­sign­ers of the course are the Bri­tish Royal Marines, renowned for their epic en­durance and fit­ness tests.

Money raised from the chal­lenge will be do­nated to CAFT, an adventure farm for ter­mi­nally-ill, dis­abled and dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren.

The farm al­lows chil­dren to ex­plore and play in a safe and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment of the farm, as well as in­ter­act with the an­i­mals.

Nick Martin, event or­gan­iser, said: “I do like to keep fit and this was a great op­por­tu­nity to chal­lenge my­self fur­ther. I also thought it would be good to do some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent to raise money for our nom­i­nated char­ity, CAFT.

“Be­fore I knew it, I had signed up and per­suaded a load of peo­ple along the way to do it with me, all with dif­fer­ent lev­els of fit­ness and strengths and weak­nesses. It will be a great chal­lenge for each of us in dif­fer­ent ways.”
