Here at Todds Leap Outdoor Activity Centre we are holding a 5km Off Road Run and Free Family Fun Day on Sunday 16th September in aid of Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke – a charity close to our hearts.
At Todds Leap we have always supported charities that are close to the hearts of family members or staff. Our connection with NI Chest Heart and Stroke leads to the Owner of Todds Leap – Ben O’Hanlon who himself has had to call upon the aid and services of the charity after suffering from a stroke in June 2014. Ben has spoken openly about his stroke and now does his bit to help give back to the charity.
“I have made an excellent recovery both physically and cognitively’’, Ben said in telling his story to NICHS back in 2014. ‘’No one would be able to tell I had a stroke. Sometimes I find myself unable to think of a word or staring into the fridge wondering what I opened the door for, but a lot of people have that, without a stroke! It left me completely exhausted though, I can’t describe it to you. I’ve had to adjust my working day to cope with it. Nowadays I rarely set an alarm clock and just wake up naturally. Unless it’s necessary, I don’t put morning appointments my diary. I don’t get annoyed or worked up about things that before would have wound me up. In the grand scheme of things, stuff like that doesn’t matter. I feel really liberated now.”
Over the past few years Todds Leap have worked hard to raise money for a worthy cause.
Get to Muck is therefore back and better than ever!
For those who don’t know, Get to Muck is a 5km Off Road Run and this year we are throwing in a Free Family Fun Event just for good measure!
