A team of WHHC Hockey players ran the tough mudder today raising funds for Hockey For Heroes.
If you do not know about them, please read below:
Many families and friends of those who have fallen in the service of our country are moved to take action in memory of their loved one. It can help with the grieving process to do something positive and many extraordinary people have raised money for the wounded in memory of the fallen Heroes.
Using Hockey as our sport to help, the Hockey for Heroes team work to raise funds for Help for Heroes, with their efforts dating back to 2012 and encompassing a mixture of exceptional physical exertion combined with playing hockey.
The Hockey for Heroes squad comprises a number of Military and Ex-Military personnel who all rally for this same cause.
Help for Heroes has been involved with Sports Recovery since 2008, and in the past year alone have put on 350 events across 50 different sports enabling over 2,100 wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans to take part in adaptive sports.
The work that Help for Heroes is doing in Sports Recovery is only made possible through donations from the amazing people who support Help for Heroes. Without you, the varied and essential sports recovery programme wouldn’t exist so thank you.
The team managed to raise over £1000. You can still donate by visiting their just giving page.
