One of the frameXpress team pitted himself against some extremely tough farm terrain to raise awareness and funds for Parkinsons UK. Jason Cartwright, who works as a supervisor at the company, launched himself on this hardcore mud run to raise funds for the charity which is close to his heart.
Along with three close friends, the team hit the Farmaggeddon track and ran a 10k race where they had to tackle both manmade and natural obstacles placed throughout woodland, farm tracks and grassland. The courses are designed to give participants the ultimate in running experiences by physically challenging them to the maximum.
The four strong team successfully completed the race and in the process raised £432 for the Parkinson UK cause, which included sponsorship from members of the frameXpress team.
Jason commented, “The run is extreme and is physically exhausting but the fact that you are doing this for a good cause, such as Parkinsons UK, drives you on to finish. The reason we were so determined to push on and guarantee to raise funds for the charity is that is so important to me. Sadly, my aunt died from this debilitating disease and a number of other close members of my family have been diagnosed with it. It was worth every exhausting moment and it is extremely rewarding to have achieved such a great result on the day and in the process helped to raise awareness.”
