Social Workers Kate and Corinna and Panel Manager Sarah conquered six miles of hills, challenges and thick, thick mud to complete their sponsored 'Tough Mudder' on behalf of Adoption Focus.

In the idyllic surroundings of Belvoir Castle on a sunny but cold day, the fearless ladies battled through obstacles, including 'Everest 2.0', 'Block Ness Monster' and 'Devil's Beard'.

Sarah said, "It was a great day. It was really tough (and muddy) and by the time we finished we were filthy, battered and bruised but completely exhilirated."

"The obstacles really focused on teamwork as well as physical exertion and it was a fantastic, fun experience - despite all the moaning!"

"Thank you so much to everyone who's sponsored us. We've exceeded our target amount, but it's still possible to donate to our appeal."

Kate, Corinna and Sarah were raising sponsorship money to fund therapeutic activities for our families. To make a contribution to their appeal please visit their appeals page.

Congratulations ladies, on your achievement.

Focus Warriors! We think this is AFTER the event: L-R Kate, Corinna, Sarah
