Young Professionals team for the Wolf Run

We’re delighted to announce that young professionals committee members Paige Howitt, Carl Malcolm, Rebecca Freeman and Phil Ballard have all entered into the Autumn Wolf Run. The run will take place on Sunday 6th September and all funds raised will of course be going to our chosen charity, Myton Hospice. Joining them will be fellow young professionals Tsarina Howitt and Vicky Rackham.

The Wolf Run is a 10k off-road run featuring a series of man-made and natural obstacles throughout the course. During this physical and mental challenge, our committee members will have to trek through freezing cold water, ditches and mud in order to make it to the finishing line – a big ask when you usually spend your time sat behind a desk in a suit!

We’ve set up a just giving page and we’d be hugely grateful if you could spare a few pounds to encourage our team and support a fantastic local charity. Please click here to find our page and donate. So far through our monthly TT raffles we’ve raised £178 for Myton Hospice, but we’re hoping that, with your continued support, we can dramatically increase this through sponsorship for the wolf run.

If you’re keen to help us raise money for Myton in other ways we’ll be continuing the monthly TT raffle and I can confirm that June’s raffle prize is a month-long family membership to Nuffield Health Centre in Warwick. We’ll also be dusting off our boots for Myton’s cowboy-themed ‘Moonlight Walk’ on 12 September 2015. This will be another great chance to raise money, but without the muddy obstacles – much more my cup of tea! You’ll also be able to see whether Paige, Carl, Rebecca and Phil survived the wolf run the week before. We’ll be sending more details about the walk later in the summer so keep your eyes peeled. No one wants to miss the chance to dress up, especially for a good cause.

In the meantime don’t forget to visit our just giving page to get donating. We’d really appreciate if you could also pass on the page link to your firms, friends and colleagues. More details about Myton Hospice can be found here.
