Two Days Until Tough Mudder - 15 Aug 2019
There’s only two days to go before Hartford Care’s intrepid trio tackle the Tough Mudder course at Badminton, Gloucestershire, on Saturday 17th August to raise money for our chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.
Jo, Maryanne and Nicky are overwhelmed by the donations they have already received which has made them even more determined to complete the 5km course with 13 obstacles, despite the weather forecast looking extremely unfavourable.
“Whilst this challenge will only be for a short amount of time, I think I am more nervous about this one than sleeping in the Sahara or Iceland! But I have two fabulous and lovely friends doing this with me and I’m sure we’ll be able to drag each other around with lots of laughs, smiles and grimaces,” says Jo.
Nicky adds: “We will also thinking about all those that Macmillan have supported and will support in the future will keep us going. Cancer has touched all our lives in some way, and we will be thinking about all those affected whilst we complete the course - and judging by the weather compete with the elements!!”
Maryanne concludes: “If I cry during the challenge, it’s not because of the pain or the mud: it’s because I’m thinking of those who have been touched by cancer.”
The trio will be ably supported by their husbands throughout the day, their start time being confirmed as 3.30pm that afternoon.
We will bring you full details and photographs next week of how Jo, Maryanne and Nicky got on.
In the meantime, we all send them our very best wishes for a successful completion of the course.
