The 12 kilometre challenge takes
place on the Secret Bunker Estate in Essex, and will incorporate five-foot deep
waterlogged bogs, sloping muddy terrain and a range of bruising man-made
obstacles that include zip-lines, balancing beams, climbing walls and the
world's longest set of monkey-bars.
Malapascua Island is a popular diving resort in the Philippines that was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda in October 2013. Last year, friends of those at the Chelmsford based branch, raised over £2,500 for the children on the island. Inspired by their story, Stephen Frost, a director in the Martin & Co Chelmsford branch, contacted local victims, who told him of the urgent need for classrooms in the region - currently there are 90 children to a classroom . and Stephen set his mind to other fundraising activities.
The Nuclear Rush is just one of a number of events that Stephen and his team plan to take part in as they look to raise £81,000.
Stephen Frost, a director in the Martin & Co Chelmsford branch, comments: â€œWe were really moved when we heard what our friends had done for the children on Malapascua Island and we wanted to join in and do our part for a very worthwhile cause. None of the team is particularly fit, but no matter what the course may throw at us, we will be starting and finishing it together, which we hope will instil a sense of comradery amongst the team too!â€
