An Aberdeen-based medical charity is seeking adventurous, energetic runners to take part in the Glack Attack
mud run to raise money to fund its work. Mistletoe Therapy UK
already has a number of runners signed up for the August 23 event, but is looking for more people to join Team Mistletoe.
The Glack Attack takes place on Glack Hill near Dunecht in Aberdeenshire. The five kilometre route will present runners with a tough challenge.
Catherine Redgate, fundraising co-ordinator at Camphill Wellbeing Trust
in Aberdeen who will be participating in the Glack Attack, talks about the challenge:
“At only 207 metres, Glack Hill may sound fairly easy, but the terrain will be very challenging. The course takes runners through bogs, quarries and woodlands. As if that isn’t tough enough, the organisers have promised a number of natural and man-made obstacles to add spice to the event.
“We already have a number of people running for Team Mistletoe, including myself. But, we would like others to join us and help raise funds for Mistletoe Therapy UK.”
Mistletoe Therapy UK is a charity set up by patients and friends, with the support of health at Camphill Wellbeing Trust. The charity’s aim is to provide information, services and promote research into mistletoe therapy as part of an integrated approach to cancer care.
