Sam Donovan gets muddy for charity in 7km Mud Run Challenge!

By 14th June 2018News

On 9th June 2018, one of our Public Health Engineers, Sam Donovan, took part in a 7km Mud Run Challenge, along with friends, to raise money for the Emily Ash Trust.

The Emily Ash Trust is an inspiring charity that was initially set up to raise awareness of the need for bone marrow doners. The trust has since evolved and their dedicated team work extremely hard to provide much needed support to families who have a child, teenager or young adult with cancer.

Impressively, Sam finished in 2nd place after tackling the many challenges and obstacles that faced him throughout the course, including:

  • Deep pits filled with water and thick mud
  • Underground water ways
  • Climbing up and through barrels and tyres
  • Crawling through thick mud under barbed wire and nets
  • Rope swings

Over £18,000 was raised overall by all those that participated in this very muddy challenge for a great cause.

Well done to all those that participated from all of us at FLATT!
