Pretty Muddy

Staff from Ward B32 at Forth Valley Royal Hospital got themselves a bit down and dirty recently, all in the name of charity.

The team, which was made up of staff nurses, nursing assistants and the ward pharmacist and known as ‘Medical Mayhem’, were competing in ‘Pretty Muddy’ a 5k race though a mud-filled obstacle course, held at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow. The course involved taking on inflatable obstacles, crawling under and over cargo nets, through muddy tunnels and racing on space hoppers, all the while surrounded by mud and water!

Overall an amazing £2,673 was raised for Cancer Research and the team hope to make this a yearly event.
