As an A&E nurse, Lauren sees firsthand the difference Starlight resources make for the seriously ill children she supports in hospital. So for her, choosing to run the 10km Tough Mudder for Team Starlight was a no-brainer.
On race day, Lauren and the 10 friends she roped into competing with her completed 20 obstacles across 10km. From working together to climb over high obstacles, swinging across monkey bars to avoid muddy water, crawling under barb wire through mud, or sliding through a small tube into freezing water, Lauren and her friends relied on team work and perserverance to cross Tough Mudder’s finish line.
After months of training and fundraising, Lauren’s hard work was rewarded! She tackled the 20 obstacles, crossed that finish line, and raised a whopping £2,542 for Starlight!
