Guest blog: Rocco's Mini Mudder!

In this guest blog, Rocco Guy Freedman, aged 8 years old, tells us all about his Mini Mudder challenge in aid of MS-UK...Photo of Rocco during the course

Photo of Rocco after the courseI absolutely loved the mini mudder, it was great. I loved doing this for the charity MS-UK, because my Grandpa has MS, and it was FUN! On the day I was very nervous. I saw the adults doing it. We went to the course and I got ready.

3…2…1…GO!

I was running as fast as I could. The first challenge was to get through the rope. We had to squeeze! We had the tunnels they were very slippery. Next we had the monkey swing, it was like the monkey bars, but our hands slipped. That was the hardest! Then we had to run really fast up a thing like a hill. We had the running and jumping in the MUD! I swam in it. That was the most fun challenge.

SUDDENLY I saw there was another challenge! I was so tired. We had to climb under the rope. We had to do the leopard crawl.  

I DID TEN LAPS OF THE COURSE!

I felt good for raising lots of money and I enjoyed telling people about MS-UK.

About Rocco's challenge

Mini Mudder is a 1 mile obstacle course mud run designed specifically for adventure-seeking kids. The course gives kids the chance to work as a team, get muddy, and experience the thrill of adventure. Rocco did this amazing challenge and raised over £100 in aid of MS-UK - every penny helps us to support even more people affected by mutliple sclerosis, so thank you Rocco!
