Insurance specialists Got You Covered selected Shooting Star Children’s Hospices as their charity partner at the start of 2021 and have an ambitious programme of fundraising planned for the year.
The team warmed up in the office with a cake sale and office sweepstakes before diving head first into their first event… Tough Mudder. A team of 5 brave employees took part in the gruelling assualt course which saw them receiving electric shocks, submerged in ice cold water and of course crawling through mud.
A message from Rob Leigh, CEO of Got You Covered
“The challenges we faced during Tough Mudder at Henley on Saturday 17th July, are nothing compared to the challenges faced by the children and families that Shooting Star Children’s Hospices support. It is important, not only to me, but to the whole of the Got You Covered team that we do as much as we can to support SSCH, more so this year than ever after the fund raising challenges the Covid-19 pandemic caused. Tough Mudder was the first of three main events this year with Snowden and the London Marathon to follow – so watch this space!”
Snowdon at Sunrise
A team of 17 brave employees and suppliers from Got You Covered took part in our first Corporate Snowdon at Sunrise, which saw them set out at 3:30am kitted out in woolly hats and head torches, ready to reach the top of Mount Snowdon to watch the sunrise. Everyone made it up and back down in one piece, spirits were high, and it was an incredible achievement for all involved.
