As part of our ongoing community and charity work, the Eyeweb team successfully completed the Hull Inflatable 5K Obstacle Run on 28th April, in support of local mental health charity, Hull & East Yorkshire MIND.
Thousands of people from across the region took part in the fundraising event, which included 10 obstacles around the Costello Athletics Stadium in Hull.
The whole Eyeweb team got involved, working together to tackle the difficult course. Running, bouncing, flipping and crawling across some of the largest and most extreme inflatable obstacles ever assembled in the UK (including the terrifying leap of faith!). It was a fun and challenging day – and everyone completed it successfully.
Paul Scott, Managing Director, said:
“It was a fantastic day, and congratulations to everyone who took part. We have a great team here, and everyone is always willing to get involved in our charity and fundraising events. It was great to see the whole team working together and having fun in support of such a worthy, local cause.
“We chose to take part in support of Hull & East Yorkshire MIND because of the fantastic work they do across our region working with those with mental health problems. Around 1 in 4 people each year will experience some kind of mental health problem, and HEY Mind provides a place they can turn to. Without their help, thousands of people simply wouldn’t have access to the support they need.”
Hull & East Yorkshire MIND provides vital support to people suffering from mental health problems in our region. Providing advice, one to one and group support, training, accommodation and more, it exists to ensure that anyone with a mental health problem has access to the support they need. Each year, the charity helps around 5000 people to improve their mental health.
The inflatable obstacle run is the latest in a series of charity and community fundraising efforts from the Eyeweb team. Earlier in the year, the Eyeweb offices were transformed into a gaming lounge as part of a 24-hour gaming marathon, to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support, as part of the Macmillan Game Heroes campaign.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us, donated and cheered us on – we really appreciate your support and simply couldn’t do it without you. The team is already planning our next fundraising event, and we welcome any ideas from clients!
