Survival is just the beginning

The toughest of the tough from Knauf UK will put themselves to the test next month when they take on one of the hardest obstacle courses London has to offer – The Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest.  

Seven Knauf employees will join two Walking With The Wounded (WWTW) beneficiaries competing against hundreds of other contestants at London’s Wembley Stadium on July 8th.

Team member, Graham Chenoweth, Knauf Business Development Manager - Finishes said: “We have been looking forward to this challenge for a long time now and what better way to get involved with a charity like WWTW then by completing one of the hardest challenges on offer.

“While finishing in one piece is the goal, the main priority is raising money for our friends at WWTW. It has been a pleasure to partner with them this year and getting volunteers from Knauf to sign up to these events has never been easier.”

This is the second event on Knauf’s charity event calendar and follows the successful Cumbrian Challenge in May where 15 Knauf employees battled the elements to complete WWTW’s flagship annual event.

The Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest is a gruelling 10km urban obstacle course set under the shadow of one of the UK’s architectural masterpieces, and home to England’s national football team, Wembley Stadium. Contestants will zig, zag, and throw themselves over dozens of challenging and thrilling obstacles to reach the finish line.

Knauf employees have been tasked with raising money for WWTW, adding to the £2800 (including gift aid) raised so far during the Cumbrian Challenge.
