A team from Evolution will be taking on the hardcore endurance challenge, Tough Mudder, in aid of charity Cardiac Risk in the Young.
The team of eleven will be aiming to raise £650 for Cardiac Risk in the Young, a charity close to the heart of one member of the team, Rebecca Murray, who sadly lost a family member to Young Sudden Cardiac Death (YSCD).
The 12-mile-long, army-style endurance course pits competitors against a collection of Tough Mudder obstacles, across varied terrain and, of course, in mud – lots of it. The challenge is designed to test both mental and physical strength, with an emphasis on teamwork and camaraderie.
Team Evo will be taking part at Tough Mudder’s Yorkshire event, which is held at Broughton Hall in Skipton. The venue is considered to be one of the most challenging all-round courses the UK has to offer.
Jordan Edwards, who took part last year, said:
“After doing my first Tough Mudder, I was hooked and could not wait to sign up for the next one! The physical and mental determination that pushes you so far from your comfort zone, powered by sheer adrenaline (and pizza from the night before) is just like no other. Apart from myself and Matt, we have a whole new bigger team of people who have not done a Tough Mudder before and I think we will absolutely smash it, but more importantly have ridiculous amounts of fun! That’s the main thing for me, we’re raising money for a great cause, putting ourselves through 12 miles of ‘Mud, Sweat and Tear Gas’ but having the time of our lives in the process!”
This will be the second year that Team Evo have been part of Tough Mudder, with this year’s team consisting of: Jordan Edwards (Key Accounts Support); Alastair McGrath (Key Accounts Support); Matt Randal (Transformation Lead); Sam Harper (Sales Support), Jonathan Thomas (Sales Support); Daniel Chapman (Sales Support); Chelsea Hough (Underwriting); Rebecca Murray (Account Manager); Suki Bachra (Account Manager); Kayleigh Debono (My Car Credit); Alex Brown (Doctor and friend of the company).
The team will be completing its challenge on the 30th July 2017. To sponsor the team, please visit:
