Nicola, Sally, and Laetitia have all been uniquely moved by just how hard unpaid Carers work to look after their loved-ones living with all forms of disability from dementia to rare chromosomal disorders.

That's why this fabulous fundraising trio are pulling on their trainers - and their Crossroads Care t-shirts! - to tackle 13 gruelling obstacles over a mud-spattered distance of 10K in Finsbury Park, to raise money for Carers and the people they care for, of all ages and disabilities.

The reality for many Carers is that they cannot leave the person they are caring for alone even for a minute. Often sleep-deprived and socially isolated, some of them report to us that they have felt close to emotional breakdown.

To combat this, our highly trained Care Support Workers take over the caring role, giving Carers vital, regular breaks. We also provide specialist community respite groups which bring together Carers who are in similar situations to build friendship, share information and enjoy fun activities.

This cause is extremely close to Nicola's heart. She has been working for Crossroads for almost five years and knows just how under-pressure Carers are.

Nicola says: "Every day, I see Carers and their cared-for dig deep and find strength and determination. I have so much admiration and respect for them that I felt compelled to well and truly push myself out of my comfort zone and take on the Tough Mudder.

Thankfully, I'm doing the race with two of my close friends who inspire me on a daily basis. We can do this, ladies!"

Thank you for all your fantastic donations to Crossroads Care which will make such a difference to the support that can be offered to families caring for loved-ones around the clock.
