On Saturday 6th of August a team from Higgins Miller threw themselves into the ultimate challenge – Tough Mudder 2016! But how did they do?
After training at SDR Fitness Centre, Cheadle 3/4 times a week doing various wall, rope and monkey bar training the team were ready! The only challenge they faced was a 20K military style obstacle course filled with mud, electric, and fire obstacles along the way.
The obstacles and hills were a challenge but Higgins Miller were ready. Through determination, hard work and a lot of mud the team finished and raised nearly £500 for their chosen charity – The Weekend Day Centre in Stockport.
