Team story

[lt]h4 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]span style="font-size: 1.5em;"[gt]The Hotcourses team raising money for is the Hotcourses Foundation [/span][span=font-size: 1.5em;]and Nyumbani UK.  Nyumbani is an internationally funded charity in Kenya, which supports three initiatives looking after 4,000 children. [/span][span=font-size: 1.5em;]The Hotcourses Foundation contributes significantly to the Nyumbani village, which gives homes and education to children affected by HIV/AIDS. [/span][span=font-size: 1.5em;]There are nearly 1000 children in this village, who are cared for by 100 ‘grandparents’.  [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=font-size: 1.5em;][lt]span style="color: #ff9900;"[gt]The village has three schools, a medical clinic, and land for farming.  Money raised by this fundraising effort will go specifically to the primary school and high school, which between them serve 893 students. [/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h4[gt][lt]h4 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=font-size: 1.5em;][lt]span style="color: #ff9900;"[gt]25 members of the Hotcourses team will be taking part in the Tough Mudder event in September.

Apart from that, it’s a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for much needed causes. [lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]br /[gt][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Lexie[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]img src="http://Images4.content-hc.com/commimg/myhotcourses/blog-inline/myhc_12032.jpg" alt="" width="200" height="200" /[gt][/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][/b]I’m running Tough Mudder because I hate mud, heights, water and fire. Actually I was lucky enough to go and visit the village in Kenya last year and see the true impact our fundraising efforts have on the Hotcourses Primary School. Meeting the children and understanding what they have already faced in their short lives means I am more determined than ever to raise awareness for the foundation. Running through mud seemed like a great next step.[lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]br /[gt][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Jon[/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][b] [/b][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][/b][b][span=text-decoration: underline;][lt]img src="http://Images4.content-hc.com/commimg/myhotcourses/blog-inline/myhc_12030.png" alt="" width="200" height="200" /[gt][/span][/b][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][/b]I’m running Tough Mudder because I was coerced into it by Sam.

Me? Never! I’m a bit of a scaredy cat sometimes and not the most adventurous...I’ve got my wedding coming up and thought this would be a great opportunity to get fit – but most importantly the reason I’m doing this is  to get out of my comfort zone for a good cause. Please sponsor me to give me confidence for this challenge and to make a difference in children’s lives that are affected by HIV. #toughcat[lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]br /[gt][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Ereen[/span][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt][lt]br /[gt][/span][lt]img style="vertical-align: middle;" title="Ereen" src="http://Images8.content-hc.com/commimg/myhotcourses/blog-inline/myhc_12061.jpg" alt="Ereen" width="200" height="200" /[gt][lt]/span[gt][lt]/h3[gt][lt]h3 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=color: #ff9900;][lt]br /[gt]My name is Ereen and I also go by Chun-Li amongst my peers.
