Event: Men’s Health, Survival of the Fittest (http://www.mhsurvival.co.uk/)
Date: October 12, 2013, 9:30am
My son Laurence and his good friends – Mark, Fernely, Tom & Umar – have all chosen to sign up for a last minute place in the Survival of the Fittest challenge in Nottingham this weekend (many thanks to Umar for sorting the four of them with places!). This is a 12km obstacle course that includes hauling themselves through a pool of ice, slithering under cargo netting in a muddy pond, swimming across a river , and clambering over all manner of other obstacles. Aside from Umar (and possibly Fernely) they are pretty much completely unprepared by the sounds of it (they are filling in for some other guys that dropped out of Umar’s original team), and have only been signed up for 6 days!
Although it is very last minute, they have nevertheless resolved to raise money for Bansang. Hopefully they’ll be able to reach their target in the coming days – and whatever the case, running for a good cause will no doubt given them a kick up the backside when they are shivering their way across a pool full of ice! They have set up a fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving (our preferred donation platform), and would be extremely grateful for any donations that they receive.
