A team of Shropshire lawyers have completed a gruelling country race to raise money for a popular charity.
Fifteen solicitors from mfg Solicitors tackled the 10k ‘Wolf Run’ in Leamington Spa on Sunday 23 April – with the team raising over £2,000 for the Emily Jordan Foundation, a local charity based in Kidderminster which supports people with learning disabilities.
Known as one of the most treacherous obstacle races in the UK, the Wolf Run race saw the team tackling woodland tracks, lakes, thick mud and testing open ground against hundreds of other competitors.
Lucy Harrold, a solicitor at the law firm said: “We had people from across various departments taking part in the event and we felt it was a great way to raise money for the Emily Jordan Foundation which does so much for hundreds of people who have learning disabilities.
“The Wolf Run is known across the country for testing people’s mental and physical strength and it was certainly very tough. However, it was all about having fun and trying to hit our target for the charity, which we’ve now beaten.”
The Emily Jordan Foundation was set up by Emily’s family in her memory after she sadly died in 2008. It supports those with disabilities socially and helps them gain employment opportunities. This year marks 15 years since the Foundation was set up in Emily’s memory.
