REAL Herbalife Heroes - these are my heroes - normal people doing an exceptionally hard walk/run, under extremely hot U.K. weather conditions, in order to raise money for the Charity "Help For Heroes"
16 runners and walkers completed a gruelling 35 miles from Appleton in Cheshire to Wrexham in Wales during a U.K. heatwave last Friday. The runners/walkers all supporters of Warrington Wolves Rugby League, were fund raising for Tom and Antony who were both seriously wounded in Afghanistan in 2010. Tom was shot and Antony was blown up in an I.E.D. explosion. The run/walk was in bright sunshine and the temperature reached over 82 degrees Fahrenheit, they were kept well hydrated by bottled water and Herbalife sports energy drinks - H30 Pro and Lift Off.
At the Wrexham Rugby Stadium the runners /walkers were rewarded when their favourite team Warrington Wolves beat Wrexham Crusaders with a score of 56 to 16. Halfway through the match medals were presented.
