We are delighted (and astonished!) that Falco’s Managing Director, Rob Harper and Finance Manager, Netty Barlow, has (yet again) raised an incredible £780 for Cancer Research UK, by participating in the Stoke-on-Trent Pretty Muddy 5k ‘obstacle mud run’ event at Central Forest Park in Hanley on Sunday 17th July.
Netty and Rob both put their best foot forward and joined hundreds of adults and children to tackle a 5k muddy obstacle course, hurdling over obstacles into piles of mud, weaving through spiders webs, scaling climbing frames, crawling through tunnels, scrambling nets and mud pits and finally racing down an inflatable mud chute!
After the event Rob said “I really enjoyed taking part in the event as cancer has such an effect on so many lives, there will always be someone we know who is affected”.
In addition, Netty said “Cancer can only be eradicated with more money being put into research, to find out what causes it, how we can stop it, and how to detect it earlier. So it’s worth dressing up and running through the muddy obstacle course to help people that I will never meet, but they can be with their families longer”.
‘Stoke-on-Trent Pretty Muddy’ was organised by charity Cancer Research UK as part of its Race for Life fundraising campaign.
All of the Falco team are very proud of what Netty and Rob have achieved and the large amount of money raised for such a good cause; Netty is an inspiration to all the staff here, having had great successes with other fund raising events such as McMillan coffee mornings, Race For Life and Children in Need amongst others – she is a star!
