Team OB to Tackle Tough Mudder for Charity
Tackling a ten-mile outdoor assault course covered by gallons of mud and pools of icy water isnΓÇÖt everyoneΓÇÖs idea of a fun, relaxing Saturday. But some brave souls here at OB HQ have stepped up to the challenge ΓÇô all in aid of charity, of course.
An intrepid team of adventurers from officebroker HQ is preparing to take on Tough Mudder 2014 to raise funds for Epilepsy Action.
As the name suggests, Tough Mudder is no walk in the park. Covering a distance of more than ten miles, Team OB will scale mounds of snow, plunge into ice baths and run through flames in a bid to reach the finish.
ItΓÇÖs an epic undertaking ΓÇô but all in aid of a very worthy cause, as the team aims to raise more than ┬ú2,350 for Epilepsy Action in memory of our colleague Christopher Cox.
Epilepsy Action works to improve the lives of everyone affected by the condition, by providing education and advice, funding research and campaigning for improved epilepsy healthcare and services. The charity is the UKΓÇÖs leading epilepsy organisation.
officebrokerΓÇÖs Marketing Manager Simon Jones is one of the ten-strong team taking part. He says theyΓÇÖre ready to conquer every obstacle the course can offer;
ΓÇ£Tough Mudder is certainly going to be challenge, but a challenge our team are up for ΓÇô and for some reason, also looking forward to taking on.
ΓÇ£The primary reason behind our taking part is to support Epilepsy Action in memory of our colleague Chris Cox. It means a lot to us here at OB. Tough Mudder is just one of the events we plan as part of our ongoing support.
ΓÇ£Talking to the team, we have all flagged certain obstacles as our personal nemesis. But this is a team effort and every member will be on hand to support each other as we get over, under and launched off the obstacles before us!ΓÇ¥
We wish them luck and look forward to finding out how they get on.
