Sharon has been a member of HOOP since 2013. Below is Sharon’s story. We would like to thank you for your great fundraising efforts.
Two years ago, at the start of my weight loss journey, I had a crazy idea that, one day I wanted to complete Tough Mudder. On Sunday 13th September 2015 that idea became a reality and I waded through 12 miles of mud and 26 incredibly challenging obstacles in the Cheshire sunshine to raise money for HOOP and to prove to myself that I could do it.
It took every ounce of grit and determination but, with the support of my team mates and fellow mudders, I made it through ice baths, electric shocks, high fences, enclosed spaces, tear gas, falling backwards into the unknown and mud, lots and lots of mud!
It’s a challenge that tests you to your limits mentally as well as physically, living up to its name, but that feeling as I crossed the finish line was amazing, such a great sense of achievement and pride in myself and my team mates.
I’ve raised about £150-£200 for HOOP.
