As we're sure you've seen by now Tough Mudder UK has been celebrating its fifth birthday. May has been an incredible month filled to the brim with events, brand new formats and record-breaking Mudder numbers - in short it's been the perfect way to mark five years of mud.
But this month also marks another special anniversary, because the only thing better than getting really muddy, is getting really muddy for charity.
For five fantastic years Help for Heroes has been our charity partner and for five years the money raised by thousands of UK Mudders has allowed Help for Heroes to support individuals who suffer from illnesses and injuries sustained while serving in the military.
What do Help for Heroes do?
Help for Heroes supports soldiers and veterans that live with an injury or illness sustained while active in the British Armed Forces, no matter where they served. The charity uses your donations to support these individuals and ensure they live full, independent and active lives.
This is acheived through a range of services, from recovery programmes and mental health support to grants and fellowships. Specialist teams focus on the five key areas of an inidividual's life: medical, mind, body, spirit and family to help them cope with the challenges they face.
Long-term recovery is more than repairing damaged bodies and minds; it's about rebuilding lives.
Together we've raised over £3 million and we're not finished yet.
If you've been to a Tough Mudder event it's likely that you've seen Help for Heroes in Mudder Village, maybe you've scaled Hero Walls or even had your photo taken with Hero the Bear - every year Help for Heroes contributes to the community atmosphere that surrounds every Tough Mudder event.
The money we've raised together has changed people's lives but there is still plenty more to be done before and during your event day.
