Inflatable 5K – Raising money for Alzheimer's Society

Inflatable 5K Team

It was a cold October morning. The brave few from Wex Photo Video Frensham Road office embarked on one of their greatest challenges yet – Inflatable 5K. Why would they do such a thing? What drove them to such madness? I’ll tell you what! Their humanitarian hearts filled with charitable intent.

Ok, I might be overselling my colleagues a little bit. We did partly do it for fun and comradery…

This year Wex Photo Video has chosen Alzheimer's Society as their charity of the year. We are already 34% of our way to our set goal of £7,000. Throughout the year, we have set up many events and cupcake sales to raise money for charity. Our latest effort was the Inflatable 5K, an inflatable obstacle course managed by UK Running Events, which took place on 19th October 2019 at the Norfolk Showground. The event was hilarious with plenty of participants dressing up in fancy dress (I’m the tequila bottle) and raising money for their causes. There were parents with their kids keeping fit as well as people just having fun. Of course, the competitive ones were laughing at the inability of the anthropomorphic tequila bottles. That’s fine I’m not upset Mark! I would highly recommend trying out one of these events, especially if you are fundraising. Even if you finish last you still get a medal.
