Thanks to all of our sponsors and the team members who took part on the day, we are so pleased to report that the total Audit Yorkshire’s Pretty Muddy effort has raised stands at £1,402.50 with Gift Aid.
This money goes to Cancer Research UK, and will help them in their work to beat cancer sooner. Staff at Audit Yorkshire wanted to make the most of the opportunities we have as a team to raise money for charity, and following on from what was raised at the Stand Up to Cancer Bake Sales, we are proud that we have been able to again do our bit for Cancer Research UK.
Fighting Cancer is a cause close to so many people’s hearts, and this is reflected in the generosity shown by those who sponsored the event team. The money raised is enough to cover the cost of a next-generation DNA sequencing experiment to help scientists understand cancer, to support the cost of a patient in a trial for lung cancer treatment for two weeks, and to provide a day of a Cancer Chat service to support people when they need it most. This means the money raised is enough to make a real difference to real lives - thank you so much to everyone who took part in any way and to Audit Yorkshire for getting behind the event.
On a lighter note, on event day we certainly had a laugh and enjoyed the challenge. The obstacles and the shock of quite how much mud we had to contend with made the day memorable, as, of course, did completing the route with team-mates. We’ve got some great photos (and perma-stained running kit!) as souvenirs of the day, and are already excited for our next challenge.
