MBN get muddy for charity
On the 24th of August, a six man team from Glasgow company MBN Recruitment took on the Tough Mudder challenge in Scotland, a 12 mile run over 26 terrifying obstacles, all to raise at least £5,000 for Yorkhill Children’s Charity.
Inspired by personal experience of the fantastic care provided at Yorkhill when his daughter was born earlier this year, MBN MD Michael Young decided that he had to raise money for Yorkhill Children’s Charity. To ensure he raised at least £5,000 Michael selected Tough Mudder as a true challenge and one most likely to encourage donations.
"The folks at Yorkhill were there for my family and now it’s my turn to put something back.” said Michael.
Michael was joined on this adventure by other members of the team ranging in age from 21 to 49. Tough Mudder is not a challenge to be taken lightly and the team trained for months, running the streets of Glasgow in lunch hours and sprinting across ploughed fields dragging a tractor tyre.
Kirsten Sinclair, Fundraising Manager at Yorkhill Children’s Charity said: “We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Michael and the team at MBN for all their support and fundraising efforts. £5,000 is an incredible amount for the charity, and we would like to wish him and everyone involved the very best of luck for their Tough Mudder challenge in August.
“Without the support of people like Michael and corporate supporters like MBN we simply would not be able to continue providing the services that we do, so thank you very much for choosing Yorkhill Children’s Charity.”
