Made for Trade run the Race for Life Pretty Muddy 2021
The Made for Trade team pulled all the stops out last weekend, raising money for cancer research in one of the dirtiest ways possible. The team took part in the Race for Life Pretty Muddy 2021 obstacle course, which was a gruelling 5 kilometre’s through Newcastle’s Town Moor.
The Before shot
The Race For Life Pretty Muddy is a brilliantly dirty and tough obstacle course, which includes A-frames, mud pits, bouncy hoppers and more. The aim of the event is to climb, crawl and slide your way to beating Cancer.
The Cancer Research Race for life made a socially distanced comeback this year. Cancer Research UK like most charities took a huge hit through the Covid pandemic, it’s important now more than ever we all do our part for charities and raising money for important causes. So, a huge thanks to all the Made for Trade staff who took part in the race.
Take a look at the event!
Amy Pout, Bradley Gaunt, Mike Robinson, Chris Wann, Laura Bailey, James McDougall, Kaylee Robinson, Kaylie Brougham, Paul Wrench, Catherine Genery-Todd and Tracy Garrod managed to raise a massive £1070 pounds for the cause and came out of the event smiling, happy and covered in bruises. When I asked Tracy about the event, she said it was “muddy, cold but a lot of fun!” All members of the Made for Trade team managed to conquer the course in good health (although some odd injuries were obtained after the fact).
The event overall was a fantastic team bonding event and all for a good, and much-needed cause.
The after shot
Cancer Research UK are the world leaders in finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. The money raised by the Made for Trade staff will help fund Dr Gerhardt Attard and his team into prostate cancer research.
