The therapy team at Kent House completed a 5k Tough Mudder obstacle course on 4 May to transform the service for the people they support. Therapy Assistant Melissa, Assistant Manager Max, Physiotherapist Tessa and Rehabilitation Support Worker Kay (who only had two days’ notice!) crawled, climbed and swam their way to the finish line. Tough Mudder is one of the more difficult obstacle courses available, where participants are put to the test mentally and physically and they must work as a team to conquer the obstacles.
Melissa said: “It was hard and cold but so much fun, we are all a little bruised but it was worth it. We are really excited to be able to make the communal space more inviting and we need the public to support us in doing that, if you have any spare pennies to donate it would be greatly appreciated”.
Fundraising Manager Hayley Wicker-Bradbury also commented on their challenge: “Wow, what a tremendous achievement, I have done a few of the easier obstacle courses over the years but Tough Mudder is one of the most renowned more difficult events, we are really proud of what the team have achieved and how much effort they have gone to in order to support the service users at Kent House. I look forward to seeing the renovated space once all the donations are collected. Well done team!”
The Kent House team are fundraising to create sensory spaces within the service. You can find out more about their challenge and sponsor them here.
