Charity Registration No. 1108179


Hello All,

The team and I have decided to do the GRIM Challenge on the 30th November. GRIM is an 8 Mile off road challenge over the Army’s vehicle testing tracks - so possibly the filthiest thing we’ll ever do!

Here is a link about the GRIM so have a look for yourself -


Our target is to raise £1,500 and you can help us get there!!! When we raise the FULL amount…our promise to you is that we will run the entire GRIM event dressed as SUPERGIRL. This will just add to the challenge so feel free to come down and support us!

The team taking up this momentous challenge are:

Derek ‘Diplomatic Immunity’ Viljoen

Matthew ‘Bear Claw’ Butler

Billy ‘Bifkin’ Gager

James ‘O Dear’ Odell

Chris ‘The Sloth’ Ray

Chris ‘Bombas’ Harradence


Tim ‘Mental’ Atkins


As part of this challenge, we will be raising money for  a charity called the Transverse Myelitis (TM) Society. TM is a rare neurological disorder, one of a group of "neuroimmunologic" diseases of the central nervous system. It greatly affected the life of my uncle and our family and he suffered with the disorder for a number of years before sadly passing away this April.

The Transverse Myelitis (TM) Society are a small UK based charity with over 1000 members whose main aim is to offer support to those who may have, or know someone with, Transverse Myelitis and its associated conditions such as ADEM, Neuro Myelitis Optica (NMO) and others. They are manned by an entirely unpaid voluntary group of people who mostly have TM themselves.

Thank you for visiting our sponsorship page and for your support. Please dig deep and sponsor us online - it's quick, easy and totally secure


Run, Wade or Crawl – we will finish it!
