Hospital Staff Get Set For Wolf Run Charity Challenge
Tuesday 13 March 2018
A team of West Midlands Hospital staff are gearing up to take part in a Wolf Run challenge this spring.
Employees from different departments are preparing for the muddy event on Sunday 8th April to support the mental health charity - Dudley MIND.
The Wolf Run is taking place at Welsh Road Farm in Warwickshire and is a combination of mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs.
It is a hardcore 10 kilometre run across raw, natural terrain including open ground, lakes, woodland and thick mud and is a test of physical and mental strength and stamina.
Staff taking part include Quality Improvement Manager Tania Peters, Engineer Dave Watts, Housekeeping Team Leader Julie Carter and Private Patient Co-ordinator Kerry Williams.
The group are aiming to raise lots of cash by taking part in the event and people can donate via the following website -https://localgiving.org/fundraising/wolfrunchallenge
MIND is a mental health charity that helps thousands of people every year and West Midlands Hospital is supporting the local branch, Dudley MIND, to help local people who use the services that Dudley MIND provide.
Every year, one in four people experience a mental health problem and hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling with an issue.
Julie Carter said: “We wanted to do something different this year to support a very worthy local cause.
“Our engineer Dave Watts has taken part in a number of Wolf Runs before and he suggested it as a fun event to take part in and raise money at the same time.
“All of us are looking forward to the event and although it’s going to be a test of stamina we hope staff at the hospital and others will support us in our fundraising quest.”
