This month’s toughest supporter: “the thought of helping all those children kept me going”

This month we want to recognise the efforts of Gurdial Flora, who (despite having bad knees) completed Tough Mudder for Save the Children, raising a huge £5,005!

Tough Mudder, for those who don’t know, is a gruelling 10-12 mile obstacle course which people usually complete as part of a team. The contestants have to complete tasks including crawling up hill through narrow pipes, swimming through ice cold water, jumping over fire and running through a maze of live wires and electrified mud.

Gurdial’s knee pain made the experience more difficult for him than most and he almost gave up after 3 miles, however he says “the thought of helping all those children kept me going”.

We’re incredibly grateful to Gurdial, and to all our supporters. If you fancy taking part in  a challenge event for Save the Children, please have a look at our fundraising page to see what’s coming up. There are lots of ways to get involved – from skydiving to cycling or even trekking along the Great Wall of China!
