Animal Charity To Benefit From Lisa's Gruelling Muddy Mission In Yorkshire

Back at work, nursing aches and pains from a gruelling 12-mile muddy mission - which tested her physical strength and mental grit - is Linden Homes North PA Lisa Riley.

Lisa, who works for the Hessle-based developer, faced and overcame her obstacle fears when she took part in the recent Yorkshire Tough Mudder challenge in Skipton.

Lisa was among hundreds of people enduring the event, tackling a 20km course not for the faint-hearted – running over rough, rolling fields, through daringly dense woodlands and into streams, bogs and pools of thick, heavy mud and clay.

Having completed the course, with the encouragement of other participants and supportive crowd, animal-lover Lisa has so far raised £300 for a cause close to her heart.

She said: “The event was certainly a challenge, and I did find the whole thing physically and mentally draining. A big thanks to everyone who supported me along the way and who has donated to be fundraising cause.”

Proud owner of pets Bailey and Will.I.Am, Lisa is raising money for the Blue Cross charity, which rehomes unwanted cats, dogs, horses and small pets around the UK.

Anyone wishing to support Lisa or find our more about the Blue Cross can visit Lisa's Justgiving page.
