Portway Plodders raise thousands for Cancer Research UK

A group of Portway Lifestyle Centre members tackled Pretty Muddy last weekend and have raised an amazing £4,779 for Cancer Research UK. The Portway Plodders formed this summer and trained together to take on the mud-drenched 5k obstacle course.

On Saturday 28th September the team ran the race together, which included the 5k run plus obstacles such as commando nets, climbing frames and a mud pit. The Portway Plodders worked hard in both running the race and fundraising with 42 members collecting sponsorships.

Site Fitness Coordinator Natasha said “I’m so proud to be see so many members come together for such an important and amazing cause. I’m so proud to be apart of such an amazing tribe who ran the 5km course supporting one another, showing tremendous teamwork, whilst having fun! I’m hoping this is just the first of many ‘fun runs’ for Team Portway! Well done guys.”

The money raised by the group will go towards funding the work Cancer Research UK do which includes the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
