At 11:30am on 26 September 2015 an intrepid team of adventurers, comprising Rihela Nazir, Asma Nazir, Saikah Nazir, Mohammed Sajid, Mohammed Qaasim and Nasir Ahmed, will venture out onto the the UK’s most friendly obstacle race, otherwise known as the Midlands Major Series, to raise money for the dementia charity, BUDS.
The Major Series has been voted the UK’s Best Trail Race and sees runners taking on 5km and 10km courses littered with all kinds of obstacles, hills, mud and water! In their own words:
The Major Series is all about teamwork – it’s not just a run. Determination and the camaraderie of your fellow countrymen will help you through. Believe it or not, you will take part in the entire challenge with a huge grin on your face! Come along ready to take on a big challenge but most importantly to have a laugh, meet some new people, and maybe even get your own back on the Major!
The team is taking on this challenge to raise money for BUDS, which aims to improve the quality of life of people experiencing dementia and their family carers in Sandwell. There is currently no cure for dementia, but with the right information and support people with dementia and their families can continue to lead positive and fulfilling lives.
“Buds is an incredible charity that supports people who are living with a dementia through BUDS social clubs and befriending service. They also offer support to the carers who would otherwise have no where to turn.
Through my time working at BUDS, I have seen first hand just how valuable BUDS are in Sandwell and how many families rely on the service it provides.
Please donate whatever you are able to, to help me reach my goal, so BUDS can carry on doing the great work they do.”
