Castlight team raises funds for the Beatson

Eleven intrepid adventurers from Castlight Financial took on the Inflatable 5k Challenge recently to raise money for the Beatson Cancer Charity. Undaunted by the Temple of Doom, Crash Bang Wallop or Holy Moly, the team  navigated its way over 15 gigantic obstacles around Strathclyde Park.


Whilst it might sound like a day out at soft play for grown ups, Office Manager Tanya Campbell says the obstacle course was not for the faint-hearted: "The inflatables were challenging to climb and we needed to work together as a team to negotiate some of them. Some of us were experienced runners and others were first time eventers but we pooled our strengths and strategies and completed the course!


"At the end of the 5k, we wore our medals with pride but what we were really proud about was raising £1,000 for the Beatson Cancer Charity. Some of our team have family members who have been affected by cancer and the Beatson is a charity close to their hearts. But for all us, it was a privilege to take part in a challenge that was not just fun - but ultimately made a real difference to people in the community around us."
