Sharon’s great fundraising efforts

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. 

IMG_1806Two 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 FullSizeRender (5)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.
