Fund-raisers get stuck in the mud for Malvern Special Families

Malvern Editorial 3rd Oct, 2017   0

A GROUP of Malvern fund-raisers threw themselves into the deep end of a mud bath to raise money for a town charity.

The team of 12, made up of staff and supporters of Malvern Special Families, got literally stuck in the mud at the weekend in an event which saw them run, crawl and wade their way to the finish line.

Undertaking a challenging 6km mud run at Eastnor Castle on Sunday, the group helped raise awareness of MSF which supports families who have children with disabilities.

They also raised more than £500 for the 30-year-old charity in the process.

Team members had to overcome natural obstacles on the Eastnor Estate, pull themselves up over steep muddy hills, wade through thick mud and plunge themselves into an icy cold river as part of the memorable experience.

Adam Seymour, one of the team’s mud runners, said: “It was a brilliant challenge to get involved in and it was really good to be part of a team helping to raise money for such a great local cause.”

Cassie Zoro, community fund-raiser at MSF, added: “Thank you so much to everyone that took part, or sponsored the MSF team and encouraged us on the day, especially the guys from Malvern Active who provided us with a team exercise warm up on the day and threw themselves quite literally head first into the muddy challenge.”
