Zoe was again raising money for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research, which helps children diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome, a genetic medical condition that affects children’s health and development. Zoe was inspired by a friend’s son, William, who was diagnosed with the condition at birth.
“Spurred on by the money we raised in 2017, we were prepared to challenge ourselves further if it meant we could once again raise much-needed funds for research into Prader-Willi Syndrome,” says Zoe. “Within days of completing the half, we just knew that we had to register to take part in the full Tough Mudder.”
With double the number of obstacles, the full course was no easy feat, but Zoe’s team successfully completed the 10-mile run and 20 muddy obstacles. With 500,000 litres of mud, 40 tons of ice and electroshock therapy to content with, the course was physically and mentally challenging but worth it for every penny raised.

With the generous sponsorship from family, friends and RSK colleagues, and donations still coming in, Zoe has raised an excellent £800, which will be donated to the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research UK.
