team qe2 at gung ho!

Hello and welcome to our blog, 
          This week we will be talking about our team taking part in Gung ho! A fun run assault course on Southampton Common. We will be raising money for the neo natal charity Ickle Pickles.

Ickle Pickles looks after very sick new born babies

          We have been doing a lot of running training with our coach Andy, Dan has taken over the role as coach. We have been playing rugby, we have been training people up and working on our fitness. 
We talked about the idea of doing gung-ho! before Christmas, and started training after Christmas to be ready for the main event.

Gung ho awaits!

Gung ho! features a lot of  Running, walking and a bit of jogging. It's a race around an obstacle course big slide to the finish line.

 It takes a lot of hard work and team work to get our whole team around the obstacle course.

Sponsor Team QE2!! In 3 weeks time Lenita, Dan, Adam, Thomas, Craig, Amy, Nick, Kevin from the GreenHouse plus Phil and Kerry, Andy and Beccy are running in the Gung Ho 5k. Its a personal challenge for all of us but we're also trying to raise £3,000 for the neo natal unit at Princess Anne Hospital.
Last November Phil & Caroline's daughter Abi had a baby - 15 weeks early, after only 25 weeks gestation. Without the amazing work of the doctors and nurses at Princess Anne, baby Lela wouldn't be here today.

Farewell to Andy!
              After 3 years Andy has decided to leave us and move on to an exciting new career working with Children. Green house wishes Andy good luck and best wishes in your new job.

We will all miss you!
