A team of five intrepid office agents have pushed themselves to the limit, tackling the challenging Wolf Run in aid of charity.

The team were running on behalf of the Midlands branch of the Office Agents Society (OAS) and raised £500 for their chosen charity, the National Institute for Conductive Education (NICE), a national charity based in Moseley that provides help for children and adults with neurological movement disorders.

The event, which takes place at Welsh Road Farm in Warwickshire, sees competitors take on a grueling cross-country course peppered with obstacles and plenty of mud.

Cameron Thomson from agency Cushman & Wakefield who headed up the team, said: “This was a great day with a really challenging course that everyone threw themselves into.  NICE is a fantastic charity and it’s great to be able to see the contributions that we can make having a positive impact on an organisation here in the Midlands.”

The OAS is a national organisation that represents the interest of office agents across the UK, bringing its members together on both social and professional levels to build strong regional networks.

George Jennings from Bilfinger GVA and OAS Midlands Chairman, said: “This is just one of a number of events that we have in the calendar for 2016. We’ve got a real push on fundraising this year and we’re hoping that by the end of the year we’ll have surpassed the £5,000 that we raised in 2015.”
