Our Muddy Mayhem event raised £3,500 in vital funding!
We partnered up with Nuclear Races in Brentwood on Sunday 7th July to host a messy, mud-mad event to raise vital funding for our local care and support services.
Clad in the iconic St Clare blue t-shirts, around 40 local Hospice supporters came together to unleash their inner mud-lover. They raised raising more than £3,500 for our charity from the Muddy Mayhem event.
“Muddy Mayhem was our second mud-run event that we’ve hosted with Nuclear Races, and included all the renowned Nuclear obstacles like the zip wire and slide – totalling around 40 obstacles overall!” says Emma Broadbent, Challenges and Events Fundraiser at St Clare Hospice. “This year, we almost tripled our profits compared to last year’s event, with five times as many people signing up to have some fun in the mud!
“We’d like to thank each and every person who made Muddy Mayhem such a resounding success on Sunday; it’s with thanks to our generous and loyal St Clare supporters that we are able to provide our specialist, palliative care and support to local people and families who need us in the community.”
Emma added, “Our charity mud-run events are always so exciting, and we hope that the team had as much fun as we did on the day. Although our 40 fun-loving participants emerged covered, head-to-toe, in mud at the end of the race, they definitely went home knowing they’d spent their Sunday supporting a great, local cause. We can’t wait to see everyone again next summer!”
