Winter Tough Guy Charity Run - SAFE ProjectA fundraising project by Graham Carder
SAFE! has been established to provide support to young people between the ages of 8 and 25 years old in the Thames Valley who have been hurt by a crime or bullying.
They also provide information, advice and resources to young people, parents and professionals across the UK about support in their local area.
SAFE! was set up in 2008 with the support of the government to find creative ways of supporting young victims.
Rik & Graham are trying to raise as much money as possible to support these young people by attempting this year Winter Tough Guy!
What is Tough Guy?? An opportunity to test oneself, on every discipline in life, in one day!
Taking place in February, often in freezing winter conditions, the Tough Guy race is staged over a course of over 9 miles. It consists of a cross-country run including many 50 metre slalom runs up and down a hill, over 6 feet deep mud and water filled ditches (resembling the Battle of the Somme), log jumps, followed by an assault course. Featuring over 25 obstacles through, under and over freezing water pools, over fire pits, rope bridges, nets and so on. The organizers claim that running the course involves risking barbed wire, cuts, scrapes, burns, dehydration, hypothermia, acrophobia, claustrophobia, electric shocks, sprains, twists, joint dislocation and broken bones.
Please donate to this fantastic charity and make a difference to young people’s life’s in our area!
