Ukf Take on Gung-Ho

On Saturday 16th June, UKF Group took on the Gung-Ho! 5k Inflatable Run at Cofton Park, Birmingham. Chairman Phil Morris, Operations Director Chris Morris, Group Managing Director Simon Greenhill and Sales Director Ian Griffiths were just a few of the volunteers who ran the inflatable obstacle course, in aid of The Get A-Head Charitable Trust.

Get A-Head is an independent charity supporting patients of head and neck diseases and cancers. Their mission is to raise funds to directly help improve the quality of life for patients. This is achieved through subsidising specialist equipment to improve the chance of correct diagnosis, and funding research and education programmes.

For three years Gung-Ho! have been running events across the UK to get people to run, jump and climb over their inflatable obstacle course and raise money for good causes. The course consisted of several inflatable obstacles including climbing walls and giant slides.

For some though, this wasn’t enough; Chris Morris and our IT & Systems Manager Sam Halfpenny have recruited a team to join them in taking on the Timberhonger 10k Run on Saturday 14th July.  Timberhonger is famed for being one of the most picturesque and challenging 10k runs in the UK and is part of the Bromsgrove Carnival that takes place at Sanders Park, Bromsgrove, B61 7JP.  The team are hoping to raise a further £500 for Get A-Head through their JustGiving Page.
