Team story

[p][b]AFP LONDON TAKES ON TOUGH MUDDER FOR RORY PECK[/b][lt]br /[gt]Sponsor 17 members of AFP London as they plunge into icy water, crawl under barbed wire and sprint through a field of live wires to raise money for the Rory Peck Trust which supports freelance newsgatherers and their families.[/p][p][b]THE CHALLENGE[/b][lt]br /[gt]On April 30, we took on Tough Mudder London West, a 12-mile (19km) military-style endurance challenge. With obstacles like the Everest, Hero Carry and Cage Crawl we ran, waded and clambered through the countryside.[/p][p][lt]object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/HX40puYSxK4" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"[gt][lt]param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HX40puYSxK4" /[gt][lt]param name="quality" value="high" /[gt][lt]param name="wmode" value="transparent" /[gt][lt]param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HX40puYSxK4" /[gt][lt]/object[gt][/p][p][/p][p][b]WHY?[/b][lt]br /[gt]Because freelance reporters, photographers, video journalists, fixers play a vital role in newsgathering but many have little backing from media organizations and no insurance to replace broken kit or pay for treatment if they're injured. They can be threatened, forced into exile or even killed for telling the truth. They deserve a strong organisation that fights for them.[span=font-weight: bold;] [/span][/p][p][b]TOUGH MUDDERS[/b][lt]br /[gt]A motley crew of varying talents. Some are great runners, others are strong and a few were, until recently, closet couch potatoes.[lt]br /[gt][i]- Florence, Antoine, Peter, Kilian, Edouard, Jessica, Robert, Jacqueline, Claire, Richard, Devinder, Joe, Arman, Thorbjorn, Dario, Charlotte, Tara[/i][/p][p][b]RORY PECK TRUST[/b][lt]br /[gt]The Rory Peck Trust is the only organisation in the world that works solely for the support, safety and welfare of freelancers. Visit their website www.rorypecktrust.org for info.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][b]TRAINING[/b][lt]br /[gt]Sit-ups on Hampstead Heath, press-ups in Hyde Park, running in Regent's Park... the team trained hard. Michael showed us the ropes and more mud than we could ever imagine. Mo led us through the dark streets of London, Kieren and Rob put another through their paces at Virgin Active. We have pushed and pulled, shoved and tugged and done more lunges and burpees than we thought possible.[/p][p][span=background-color: #ffffcc;][lt]object width="425" height="350" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/jg_f5dEzGG0&list" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"[gt][lt]param name="data" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/jg_f5dEzGG0&list" /[gt][lt]param name="quality" value="high" /[gt][lt]param name="wmode" value="transparent" /[gt][lt]param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/jg_f5dEzGG0&list" /[gt][lt]/object[gt][/span][/p][p][b]THANKS[/b][lt]br /[gt]Thanks for all your donations. Your support galvanised the unfit, motivated the hesitant and inspired a whole team in the face of a daunting challenge. UK tax payers, please tick the Gift Aid box so RPT can reclaim the tax.[lt]br /[gt]Thanks also to Tough Mudder for facilitating the challenge, Virgin Active and trainer Mo for giving their time and expertise for free. Michael and Phil of Mudstacle for showing us the obstacles.[/p][p][/p]
