Danny, who lives in Quedgeley, is not fazed at the prospect of overcoming 20 challenging obstacles during the run at Glanusk Park in Powys on 21 June.

Two grandparents of the energetic 26-year-old died of cancer and so Danny wanted to play his part in raising money to try and combat the disease. At the same time his girlfriend Jess Hanks plans to take part in this year’s Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

“I have done a Tough Mudder race in the past and so was looking for my next challenge while raising money for a charity close to my heart. I’m fortunate that I’m in really good health but I know that is not the case for everyone,” said Danny, who has set himself a fundraising target of £500.

Friends and family have already pledged £100 towards Danny’s £500 target, which he is confident he’ll reach before the race next month.

And as for preparing for the challenge Danny hopes his five-a-side football, circuit training and regular gym sessions at Virgin Active, Barnwood will keep him ahead of the pack.

The money raised by Danny will help the Teenage Cancer Trust support the scores of teenagers, aged between 13 – 24 years old, who are diagnosed with cancer each month.
