There was mud and sweat, but fortunately no tears, in the latest fundraising endeavour from colleagues at local building society the West Brom.
A six-strong team from the Society’s head office in West Bromwich tackled the Suicide Six trail run at Baggeridge Country Park in Sedgley to raise more than £1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Lucy Bridge, James Brent, Kate Shinton, Clare Riley, Mike Dandy and Steve Clarke completed the gruelling six mile route over a testing terrain which included wading across a river and getting through a clay pit.
Organiser Lucy said: “The team generally agreed that this was one of the toughest physical events we’ve ever done, but hugely enjoyable all the same.
“Moreover it was really satisfying at the end knowing we had completed the challenge and raised important funds for Marie Curie.”
Meaghan Annear, Senior Corporate Account Manager at Marie Curie, said “Congratulations to everyone who participated in this incredibly difficult event!
“We’d like to send our thanks for the vital funds they have raised, which will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses at the time when they most need it, as well as emotional support for their families.”
