Charity run by my son for Hughes

Hello to everyone, I would like to introduce you to my son Kris, who is doing the 'tough mudder" (one of the most difficult assault courses in the UK) see this video -

He is doing this to support the Hughes Syndrome charity - if anyone would like to sponsor him, or share his page to gain support we would really appreciate it.

His page is:

Thank you :-)

Great news, I hope it goes really well, what a generous thing to do. Mary F x


Hi Kris:

A good idea is but a passing thought, unless it is put into action. Thanks for the action Kris!

Best of luck,



Thank you Mary, CanaryDiamond - if you would share where every possible that would be great - here is a link showing some of the obstacles he is going to have to go through - Including a field with live electrodes! yup he will get some shocks (and yes he is crazy) :-)

Tough Mudder

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. Tough Mudder is the premier adventure challenge series in the world.

I am really proud of him and thankful too that he is doing this for Hughes -

He did the 3 peaks in 24 hours last year for Asthma, as he suffers from that, earlier this year he did an 8 mile run for Cystic Fibrosis for a friend, and later this year he is hoping to do the Great Wall of China, again hoping to do that for Hughes too. Getting the sponsors becomes harder the more you want and try to help charities though.

Thanks again



Great stuff Lesley :) I sent his running vest and leaflets off yesterday. Kris is really good doing all this when he has asthma too - just goes to show what you can do if you put your mind to it!

I've always fancied walking the Great Wall of China but I think you need about a year to get the funds together, unless you're very well connected.

Say a big thank you from the charity and I hope you all have a great Easter.



God bless him!!! What a wonderful thing to do. You must be so proud...Teresa


A big thanks to Kris for doing this.Will share his page on Facebook.


Thanks for responses, and those who have shared and or sponsored Kris. He set himself a target of £300 and already raised £70 :-)

Kate, yes all received this morning thank you - I think you have to raise £3000, and have a group, but Kris is not sure if that is £3000 each or for group.

Kris had shin splints when he did the 3 peaks that split as he came down the first mountain - all he did was keep chanting "I Can I Will" and did not give up, and did complete in the 24 hours

Mind you, I think he gets both stubborn and positive attitude from me - I was paraplegic, told I would never walk again :-) guess what, it may of taken me 10 years, but I am walking! So for everyone Positive Mental Attitude...

So thank you too peops for the support and yes thanks passed onto Kris

Have a great break everyone

Warm hugs and big smiles :-)




How wonderful! What a generous spirit your son has and such a inspiration and example he will be to others. Good Luck to him xx


Hi everyone, a last minuet request, can you please share this page .... Can't believe it is this Saturday, Kris has worked so hard for this - we have seen the first obstacle!!! Yikes jump into a 12foot deep ice bucket, then go under the ice to come out the other side and climb the sides, to get out! OMG - such a big thanks for doing this I am so proud of my son :-D


OMG! Is he allowed to wear thermals? Good Luck to him x


He can wear whatever he chooses, but of course any clothing gets heavy, so I think he is wearing just trainers, shorts and sport top! and thank you :-) x


WOW - what a superstar you have there! Mary F x
