Tough Mudder for Bashir

Following the tragic death of Bashir Osman, head of FOSIS, last July, his siblings have joined together to take on Tough Mudder in his place, to raise money for Penny Appeal’s Thirst Relief appeal.

Bashir had been planning to take on the 12-mile challenge when the tragedy occurred last summer. With a fundraising target of £165,000, he was raising money to build 50 wells in East Africa, to benefit people in poverty and drought-stricken areas. He had planned to train for the event over a period of 12 months, in an effort to regain good health and inspire others to support the cause:

“As you all know I am in not the best of shapes over the past couple of years due to an abdominal injury. This injury has led me to gain weight exponentially. Over the next months I am going to part-take in Tough Mudder which is a 10-12 mile long obstacle course. In order to do this my fitness levels should to an adequate level.” — Bashir Osman

He was dedicated to this training regime until he passed away. Knowing that many people would benefit from his efforts, he was committed and passionate about this goal. So much so, that his own fundraising page has already raised £168,826 towards the cause.

Running under the umbrella of Bashir Osman’s Legacy, four of his siblings — Abyan, Idil, Muad and Mohamed — will take part in Tough Mudder East Midlands on Sunday 22nd of May. When their brother passed away, they were motivated to keep his memory and legacy alive by continuing his fundraising efforts, to not only reach his goal but to surpass it. They thus decided to complete Tough Mudder in his memory.

The siblings are working valiantly as a team to make this happen. Tough Mudder is a challenging obstacle course, spanning 12 miles of deep mud, barbed wire, ice cold trenches and other physically challenging obstacles. It is a test for everyone who takes it on, both physically and mentally. The members of the team have never taken on a challenge of this kind before, but they believe that with a lot of training and support they will complete it successfully to fulfil Bashir’s goal, inshallah.

Bashir’s siblings have a team target of £1000, which they are getting closer to each day. Please help them reach this target by making a donation to their fundraising page.
