Mum’s muddy 5k run for BWBF

13.07.2016

A fundraiser has taken part in a muddy 5k event to support British Wireless.

A mum has raised almost £100 for BWBF after taking part in a muddy run.

Our new Financial Controller Adrienn Rocco took part in the event at the weekend.

She tackled a 5k obstacle course which involved running through tyres, crawling through a tunnel, climbing through ropes, bouncing on space hoppers and sliding on inflatables – all while being sprayed with muddy water.

Adrienn, who is a member of the Medway Runners group, has raised £95 for British Wireless through sponsorship.

She said: “I really enjoyed taking part in the run.

“Of course I was very muddy and a bit cold and wet by the end of it but it was great fun and it’s all raising money for a good cause.”
