On the 26th March 2018 9 members of the Lendlease S9 Construction and Development team took part in the Stratford Tough Mudder 5K. The event took place right next door to the S9 site on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The main reason for taking part was to raise desperately needed funds for two very worthwhile charities, The Lighthouse Club and Cancer Research UK.
Whilst the Tough Mudder was half the distance of a normal event it had many of the main course obstacles such as the 10ft Hero walls, Hang Tough (Monkey Rings) and the Pyramid Scheme amongst others. The team made up of various ages, made its way around the course together and ensured that everyone got over, under or through each of the obstacles. It was a really great event and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The S9 team raised £521 for CRUK and £732 for The Lighthouse Club smashing our target of £1000.
The S9 team is now preparing for the next challenge in September 2018!
