On Saturday 7th May Cancer got to feel the full fury of an army of women sick of it. Women of all ages who have lost loved ones, friends and family flooded Victoria Park in Warrington (England) to take part in Cancer Research’s Pretty Muddy 5K obstacle course. For those who don’t know Pretty Muddy isn’t a walk (or run) in the park. It’s a muddy obstacle course that woman of all ages and ability can traverse – and that’s exactly what the Nice ‘n’ Naughty Dirty Dozen have done.
The 13 strong team, clad in pink Nice ‘n’ Naughty t-shirts tramped through the mud, pulled themselves under nets and laughed their way down a rather dirty slide to finish things off. Luckily the weather was amazing on Saturday but their main reason for smiling was the amazing support they received from everyone who helped to sponsor them – the combined total of money raised by The Nice ‘n’ Naughty Dirty Dozen was a whopping £2377.24 (roughly 3.000 EUR) .
Trish Murray Operations Manager of Nice ‘n’ Naughty was elated as she not only finished the race, overcame her fear of both water and mud, but managed to get 346% over her expected target by raising £519.24 (roughly 660 EUR) herself! “It was a great day and fun was had by all. I just want to thank everyone who took the time to donate and wish me well.” She said covered in mud, “I’m just ready to get a shower and a glass of wine!”
