Contenders ready? BDB takes on Rough Runner→ Back to stories
The BDB team will be taking on another sporting challenge this October – this time it will be Rough Runner. The event takes place on 21st October, with all proceeds donated to our 2017 charity of choice: Seashell Trust. The nine-strong team will be running the 5km obstacle course race, inspired by TV gameshows like Gladiators, Ninja Warrior and Total Wipeout. Obstacles include a 40m water slide and the famous Travelator, conjuring up memories from the 1990s.
But it’s not all fun and games; BDB is taking on Rough Runner all in aid of Seashell Trust, a worthy local charity that supports children and young adults with complex learning disabilities and communication needs. Seashell Trust provides a happy, creative and secure environment for students between the ages of 2 and 25, who mostly have little or no language abilities.
This is the fourth sporting challenge that BDB is taking part in during 2017, having already participated in a swimathon, the Great Manchester Run and the Colour Run. The activities have also brought out the team’s competitive spirit, having won the ‘females only’ Business Challenge for the fastest combined time at the Great Manchester Run in the small business category in May.
Find out more about why Seashell Trust is our chosen charity for 2017, and why we’ve committed to raising over £3,000 for additional learning resources for the students.
