This Saturday (5 May), fundraiser Desmond Nganga will be battling with thick mud and challenging obstacles over 5 miles as he takes part in Tough Mudder London to raise money for UK based Kenyan charity Out of Afrika.

Tough Mudder Half is 5 miles of mud and epic obstacles specifically designed to test teamwork and toughness. Along with 5 other brave members of his church, Desmond will strive to overcome best-in-class obstacles and adrenaline-pumping challenges.

Desmond has been training hard for the event.

“I will face thick mud and a gauntlet of obstacles whilst putting my mental grit to the test, but it is nothing compared to the hardship faced by these sponsored children back in Kenya,” he said.

Out of Afrika is a charity that works at grass root level in Kenya, promoting education to orphans, disadvantaged children and youth to promote education to orphans and disadvantaged children to increase self-sufficiency and long term sustainability.
