On the 17th June, TheVeganKind are taking on Tough Mudder Full, one of the UK's most gruelling outdoor assault courses, to raise money for a charity that's very close to our heart: Animal Free Research UK.
Half of Team TVK (six of us in total - Scott, Karris, Eve, Sebastian, Kate and Jack) will be running a total of nearly 20km and completing around 20 obstacles that will test us in every way, both mentally and physically. We’re talking running through 10,000 volts of electricity, a 25 foot ice
water swim and a 40 foot barbed wire crawl through mud to name only a few. Throughout our 20km journey we will also be pleasantly accompanied by 500,000 litres of mud and 40 tons of ice. Brrr.
We hear you, why would we choose to wade through ice baths
and craters of mud on a Sunday afternoon? Well here at Team TVK, we are all about teamwork. Tough Mudder throws us out of our comfort zone, not only testing our physical and mental strength individually, but more importantly our strength as Team TVK. This is not a race, its an opportunity for us to work as a team to overcome obstacles and accomplish something incredibly tough together. Furthermore, it provides an excellent opportunity for us to raise money for Animal Free Research UK, a charity which is driving ethical, evidence based research to fight, prevent and cure human diseases by investing in the most innovative research which focuses on humans without the use of animals. They are creating a future where animals are no longer
used in medical research, where scientists focus on new techniques which are human relevant, giving better outcomes for everyone, people and animals alike. With your amazing support, they can advance human health and end the use of animals in medical research, forever. We'd run through a whole lot more than mud and ice for that <3
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our story and if you can spare any donation at all it would mean the world to us, and to the animals! If you can't spare a donation then if you'd consider sharing our campaign that would be an amazing help!
Lots of love,
Team TVK x
