Story

This is Tony. Tony lives in a village in Cambridgeshire, he has a learning disability, and he is supported in his own bungalow by one of the amazing Thera East Anglia Teams. Tony is a well-known and well-loved character in his community.

Times are tough for many of us, and it is no different for Tony: Tony has a few things he needs to pay for, but his garden swing is of particular importance to him. The swing in Tony's garden is a specialist piece of equipment, which requires some maintenance and safety flooring underneath it in order to keep Tony safe. The swing is not a luxury for Tony, it is a necessity, and an amazing sensory experience for him.

Some work has already been done to access funds to pay for the maintenance and specialist flooring, but this is not enough. Some people who support Tony have decided to put themselves through cold, muddy agony in order to raise more funds! Due to technical difficulties, the Thera East Anglia staff could not run the scheduled obstacle race in October, but, Justin, Sheraley, Patrick and Graham are signed up for an even harder one on the 17th December 2016. This is the 6K Judgement Day obstacle course organised by Military Fitness. It will involved rope swings, tunnels, carrying weights, mud and various tough obstacles over a 6K course.

We know you are bombarded by requests for money often. The more you can donate the better: but even a small amount will count. Tony loves and needs his specialist swing, and any surplus money made can and will be used to help Tony around his garden and home via other projects.

Please give what you can, and please share this page via your use of social media! If you share this just giving page on your own Facebook, please remember, more people will see it if you set the post to 'public' rather than just 'friends'.

Just think of us in pain and covered in cold mud on the 22nd October 2016!

Thank you so much from Tony, Patrick, Graham, Sheraley and Justin.

    A new race has been organised, and even tougher than the original (and certainly colder)! We will now cover a very demanding 6K course called 'Judgement Day' - organised by Military Fitness. This will take place on December 17th 2016. We will report on this after the event!

    OK, due to unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, we could not attend the race today. We are able to transfer the race to the next date, so your generous donations will still be rewarded by us being covered in mud. This Just Giving page remains open for a long while yet, so, we wil announce the new race date very soon. Thank you. Justin.
