Mudder’s raise over £8,000 for bereaved parents.
On Sunday May 21, a team of 42 tackled Tough Mudder at Grantham raising a staggering £8,160 for the maternity bereavement suite appeal at Scunthorpe General Hospital.
Calling themselves Pinkys Mudders the team battled their way around the 12 mile obstacle course raising money for the Health Tree Foundations (HTF) appeal.
The team ageing from 18-59 tackled the endurance event series at Belvoir Castle, testing their mental as well as physical strength. Obstacles ranged from the Artic Enema which saw the mudders jumping and swimming through a skip full of ice to the Electricshock therapy, where the team endured getting electrocuted by 10,000 volts.
Pinkys mudders team organizer Hayley Thompson said: “The whole team had a great day participating in Tough Mudder, helping to raise funds for the maternity bereavement suite appeal.
“Everyone pushed themselves to their limits and I cannot thank the team and the spectators for all their help”.
The team has already signed up to Tough Mudder 2018, which takes place throughout England with the team attending the Belvoir Castle event again.
Central delivery suite manager Jane Stoney said: “I would like to personally thank the team for all of their efforts towards helping the maternity bereavement suite appeal.
“The delivery suite staff are over whelmed by the amount of generosity and fundraising who are helping us reach our £150,000 appeal target”.
