The Forever Strong Melanoma UK team hit the ground running at weekend when they completed the first of their many scheduled challenges in 2017.

Gary Rothwell, owner of the Forever Strong gym in Rochdale, led a team of ‘Muddy Maniacs’ through an obstacle course of 6km, including a lot of running, climbing, lifting, water obstacles, slides, inflatable and plenty of mud.

Melanoma UK CEO, Gill Nuttall, met Gary a number of months ago when she joined his gym. When he found out about the charity, he set his sights on doing some fundraising for melanoma support and Muddy Maniacs became the first challenge of 2017.

There are more challenges planned, and during May, melanoma awareness month, the team will be carrying out a weekend long ‘Kettlemania’ challenge.
