Our 16-strong team of Claremudders conquered the Tough Mudder assault course on 12th September at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire to raise money for our chosen charity for 2015, St Rocco’s Hospice. The team trained all year for the gruelling 11-mile obstacle course, which involved ice baths, electric shocks, and lots and lots of mud! The team managed to conquer all these obstacles and more to cross the finish line in under four hours.
There’s still time to support the team’s fundraising efforts by visiting our fundraising page.
St Rocco’s Hospice supports the borough of Warrington, a community of over 200,000 people, providing highly specialised care along with a wide range of services to support those who have been diagnosed with illnesses which are terminal or life-limiting. St Rocco’s has inpatient beds, provides day therapy care, living well services, a neighbourhood support service, and has plans for a hospice at home service. Many of their staff are trained to a very high level, and provide services which are not readily available elsewhere in the area, working with other healthcare professionals such as GPs and hospitals.
Tough Mudder is just one of a host of our charity events and activities. Claremont’s monthly dress down days and charity breakfasts raise regular funds for St Rocco’s, along with our much-anticipated annual pumpkin carving contest. We’re excited to be able to make a difference to a local charity that provides such a vital service to those who need it most.
