Sixth Formers take on Tough Mudder for Cancer Research

Events Senior School

Twelve Sixth Formers, accompanied by Mr Murphy and Mr McCann, completed a gruelling six mile, 13 obstacle Tough Mudder course on Saturday in Henley- on- Thames. The challenge was Jamie Darvill's idea which stems from his own personal story. Jamie was diagnosed, at just nine years old, with an aggressive sarcoma on his right leg. He was fortunate enough in that it was detected early and he was able to receive the necessary timely treatment. However, it has impacted on his life and Jamie feels strongly that he wanted to give something back and therefore set about thinking of ways to raise money and awareness for the great work of Cancer Research. The Tough Mudder was designed to take us out of our comfort zones and push us collectively as a team to achieve something. The boys did a fantastic job across a range of taxing obstacles; crawling through mud and jumping into freezing muddy water pools. One of us even managed to lose a shoe because the mud was so deep. It was a great day and all should be congratulated on completing the course, showing real character and enjoying a few laughs along the way. Jamie has managed to raise an incredible £1,485 to date, in his Just Giving page for Cancer Research.
