All About Hero Walls
Can’t go through it, can’t go round it, you’ll have to go over it. This Tough Mudder classic has been brought on course this year by our heroes at Macmillan (you must have spotted the green flags). With two 9’ tall walls with only a tiny 4” foot hold, you’ll either need some serious upper body strength to clamber over yourself, or a leg up from a Mudder or two.
Part Of The Team Macmillan
They’ll make sure you have:
- A bumper digital fundraising pack, access to Macmillan’s Tough Mudder online training zone and loads of fundraising tips and tricks.
- Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
- Regular e-newsletters keeping you in the loop in the lead up to event day.
- A dedicated Facebook group to meet your fellow Tough Mudders.
Most importantly, Macmillan will provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK.
£32 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for 1 hour helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
£97 could help run a Macmillan information and support centre for 1 hour.
£372 could fund Macmillan’s Online Community for 1 day. In this time, 2,668 people affected by cancer in the UK can give emotional and practical support to each other on anything to do with cancer – from treatments, to coping with everyday life, to the death of a loved one.
No matter what you raise, big or small you will be helping people living with cancer the support they need, so join Team Macmillan and do whatever it takes for people living cancer.
