Coventry law professional to tackle 10km obstacle challenge
A Coventry law professional is gearing up to take on a 10km obstacle course challenge for charity.
Keri Tucker, a trainee legal executive at Band Hatton Button in Warwick Road, is hoping to be crowned a muddy marvel at a Wolf Run event taking place at Welsh Road Farm in Warwickshire on Sunday, September 7.
Those taking part in the gruelling 10km contest will have to overcome a variety of off-road challenges including mud runs, trail runs and obstacle runs.
The 26-year-old, who joined Band Hatton Button in 2006, is hoping to raise around £300 for the firm's sponsored charity the Heart of England Community Foundation, which gives grants to support community projects across Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull.
Keri is also celebrating becoming a Graduate member of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and will be eligible to qualify as a Fellow (full member) next year.
She said: "I am really looking forward to taking part in the Wolf Run. I like the fact that it's not a typical road race and that you can get stuck-in to lots of different challenges.
"It's definitely going to be a tough challenge though, particularly with all of the obstacles you have to tackle, but I have been taking part in a boot camp every week to try to prepare myself.
"As the Heart of England Community Foundation is Band Hatton Button's sponsored charity for the year, it seemed a great way to boost their funds.
"Everyone at the firm has been really supportive and have already contributed to the donation pot. I hope the money raised will be a positive contribution to the charity which helps to support community projects in the area by providing much-needed funding to those that need it most."
