Axis people get down and dirty on a Tough Mudder challenge raising money for the Axis Foundation and for Demelza
Brave Axis people participated in the London South Tough Mudder, raising £4,512.50 for Demelza and the Axis Foundation. The challenge comprised a five-mile course with 13 challenging obstacles specifically designed to test teamwork and toughness. Participants were tested not only as individuals, but also as a team, with obstacles ‘Pyramid’ and ‘Hero Walls’ requiring team members to give each other a helping hand.
The Axis Machine completed the course in just over 2 hours, and were rewarded with t-shirts, bandanas, a great sense of personal achievement, renewed team spirit – plus over £4,500 in the bank for great causes.
Axis people said
After it was all over, our people recommended the challenge as a teambuilding exercise – remembering all the time that they were raising awareness and funds for two great causes.
“Whilst waiting at the start line we were told it was not a race, but an endurance test. It gave us the opportunity to tackle some adversities as a group along the way”
Catherine Weedon, Senior Resident Liaison Officer.
“Amazing strength and team work got us through the course. It was a real accomplishment from all. Such a mixed bag of people but we moved as a unit: the Axis Machine”
Tayla Hayes, Resident Liaison Officer
“It was a great day out. Very enjoyable, everyone got stuck in (quite literally for some people), but great team building and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to partake in it”
Adam Perfect, Quantity Surveyor
“There will be always someone to help you get over any obstacles – great teamwork, proud to be part of Axis and part of the team”
Cristina Ionita, Assistant Contract Manager
“It exceeded my expectations – super happy that I did it and I will definitely do it next year. Amazing team spirit and good team bonding, and very happy that we supported our causes”Alexandru Condreanu, Site Supervisor
