Teacher tests herself on ultimate charity assault course

25th June 2019

A brave Southport woman is set to tackle a painstaking assault course to raise funds in memory of her dad.

Kimberley Mary Ann Wright lost her father last year and is now taking on the Hero Assault course to raise money for the ReThink mental illness charity.

Kimberley said “He fought a long battle and struggled with poor mental health, which ultimately cost him his life.

I know that if dad had been in a position where mental health support was more readily available, Dad could still be here today.

It’s heartbreaking to think that Dad did not feel that he was able to reach out for help.

No one should feel that way…

He was an extremely loving, hardworking and intelligent man. I know that he would do anything to help others. I wish I could have done more for him.

In his honour, on the anniversary of his passing, I am raising money for Rethink Mental Illness – a charity which improve the lives of people severely affected by mental illness through services and local groups, expert information and training, and successful campaigning. Making sure everyone affected by severe mental illness has a good quality of life.

The assault course (Hero Assault Course) is 8km and is packed full of ‘military style’ obstacles”
