Mel is a Tough Mudder!

Mel is taking on the huge challenge of Tough Mudder on 20th August to raise money for the Behcets Syndrome Society

Mel suffers from Behcets, a rare chronic rheumatic illness, initiated by the body’s immune system being over-reactive and producing unpredictable episodes of inflammation. We’re sponsoring Mel to take part and want to say huge thanks to Ricky Chandler and Sports Traders Alliance Group for sponsoring Mel’s Tough Mudder challenge by donating sports tops for the day.

Mel explains;

“I have been living with this for nearly two years in this time I have realised how little money and awareness there is regarding this condition. I have excellent friends that are taking part in Tough Mudder with me this year, but I could not have done this without my boss – Doug Hobbs – who has sponsored me to take part. I am asking for a donation of any size as there is little money given to this nasty disorder that I have found difficult to come to terms with.”

You can sponsor Mel right here with any amount, big or small for this great cause.
