Are you ready for a challenge in 2017? Do you want to take on the ultimate physical test?
If you’ve answered ‘yes’, then we’d like you to join our Derian Dream Team to take on the tough Born Survivor course.
We’re excited to announce that we’re an official 2017 charity partner of Born Survivor, who stage military-style obstacle courses across the UK, encouraging thousands of people to test their fitness and teamwork while raising thousands of pounds for good causes.
“If you’ve made a New Year Resolution to try something new or improve your fitness, why not sign up for Derian’s Dream Team and test yourself on Born Survivor in September? We’ll be behind you all the way and help you make it a day to remember!” said Stuart Chell, of Derian.
“Caring for a child with a life-threatening illness or life-limiting condition can be physically and emotionally draining for families. Interrupted sleep, emergency hospital visits, medication schedules and an uncertain future are just some of the many hurdles they face. Could you spare an hour or two to face the Born Survivor challenge as part of the Derian Dream Team and make a huge difference to their lives?”
This is the second and final year of the Derian Dreams campaign which is highlighting the importance of respite care to many of the families we support, not least because it gives them an opportunity to catch up on much-needed sleep, sound in the knowledge their child is in caring, professional hands.
“The Derian Dreams campaign has really captured the imagination of people across the North West and we’re grateful for everyone’s support over the last year. Let’s pull out all the stops to make 2017 even better – a year when we all overcome the obstacles placed before us!” said Stuart.
With a discounted entrance fee of £50 for all members of the Derian Dream Team and offers of free places for group bookings, we are asking people to gather friends, family, fitness buddies or work colleagues to take part. The Born Survivor event will take place on September 9th at stunning Lowther Hall in the Lake District with 30-plus brutal obstacles over a 10km course.
“If you’re looking for a new physical challenge, look no further than Born Survivor!” said Kevin Bedford, Born Survivor event director. “Make no mistake, Born Survivor’s not your average mud run or obstacle fun day – it’s the ultimate military obstacle course challenge!”
He went on: “We’re proud to be linking up with Derian House and will be doing everything we can to help the Dream Team achieve their goals.
“It is truly humbling to see the challenges that many of the children and young people who visit Derian House face – and overcome – on a daily basis. They tackle their own obstacles with bravery and commitment – two qualities which anyone who takes on Born Survivor needs in abundance.”
