Gold Rush Complete Rough Runner 2019

On the 5th of October, team Gold Rush from Gold-i took on Rough Runner’s 10K obstacle course which merges distance running and obstacles inspired by all the game shows we love – think Total Wipeout with a dash of Ninja Warrior - to raise money for the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF).

As a corporate partner of QEF, money raised will be in aid of their new Care and Rehabilitation Centre, which will provide a state-of-the-art hub of expertise for people with a wide range of disabilities. Using assistive technology, residents will have real control over their surroundings – for example turning on their TV, opening and closing their blinds, and controlling their heating and lighting without help from carers.

So far, team Gold Rush has raised over £3000.

Based in Surrey, QEF is a national charity working with over 5,000 disabled children and adults every year with physical or learning disabilities or acquired brain injuries. Whether it is gaining new life skills for living independently, rebuilding a life affected by brain injury, providing assistive equipment or acquiring the skills to drive a specially adapted car; QEF helps people to maximise their independence and achieve their goals.
