Staff get muddy for cause
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.”
