Here at NetEDI, we never shy away from an opportunity to raise money for a good cause and challenge ourselves at the same time. In that spirit, a few brave members of the NetEDI family are going to complete the famous Tough Mudder course on September 7th!
That’s right we’re going to be climbing over stuff, crawling under stuff, and running through stuff, all in the name of charity. So why Tough Mudder? Jack Clifft, one of our Project Coordinators in the Operations team, explains why.
“I came up with the Tough Mudder idea as I think it’s a great team building exercise and a brilliant way to raise money for a good cause. To prepare, I will continue to train Brazilian Ju Jitsu and Judo as well as strength training in the gym. I would greatly appreciate any support and donations given to the team!”
So far, we’ve recruited ten brave NetEDI people ready to take on the epic assault course challenge. But what if you absolutely hate dirt and pain? Tasmin, on the implementations team, explains why she’s going to power through. “I absolutely hate dirt and pain. The only place I run is to the shop for more prosecco, so I am really dreading Tough Mudder, but I am going to do it for all our heroes who died fighting for this country and for my baby, who is called Dudley.”
You can see Dudley below and I think we can all agree he scores pretty high on the cute-ometer.
We need your help!
We need you to help us fundraise for this brilliant cause. All you have to do is visit this link and you can donate anything you want – every donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated and will go straight to Help for Heroes.
Help for Heroes is a charity that aims to support members of the Armed Forces Community and their families, whether they are currently serving, have served in the past or have been medically discharged from service. Help for Heroes is there to provide the financial, practical and psychological support they need and to encourage them to become active and fulfilled members of society.
The Tough Mudder course is famed for being one of the most challenging and varied out there. It’s 8-10 miles long and has 25 obstacles in total, each designed to test the participants’ strength – both mental and physical – to the limit.
The obstacles themselves take no prisoners. Fancy jumping into a pool of ice cold, muddy water? Or running through electrically charged wires? How about tackling the Gauntlet? What’s the Gauntlet, I hear you ask? Well, it’s basically a ‘greatest hits’ obstacle which combines elements of all the hardest and most popular obstacles in Tough Mudder history – it’s over 100 feet long and is the longest obstacle ever constructed!
