On a rainy Saturday in July, 15 Lead Tech Warriors put themselves to the test at Yorkshire Tough Mudder. Set at Broughton Hall, our most challenging charity event yet took motivation, teamwork, positivity and grit as participants navigated through 13 obstacles across five kilometres.
Senior content manager, Helen Fisher told us, “This was probably one of the most physically challenging events I’ve participated in, but I feel that the level of teamwork helped us become stronger. It was a great day raising money for two great causes.”.
Tough Mudder is all about teamwork. Participants had to work together, helping each other climb, crawl and overcome hero walls, mud mountains, a pyramid climb and the Mudderhorn, a 25-foot-high climb.
Paul Walsh explained, “I’ve done a few of these challenges before, but what made this different was that it wasn’t a race. This was a team challenge where we found solutions together. It helped us bond and everyone walked away with a huge sense of achievement”.
Yorkshire Tough Mudder was a great success for our Lead Tech Warriors who have raised £820 so far.
Giving something back is very important to us and we’re always looking for opportunities to get our teams involved to do their part. This year, we have a number of events planned to raise money for our nominated charities, St. Gemma’s Hospice and the Leukaemia & Intensive Chemotherapy Fund (LINC).
