To celebrate 10 years of Babbasa, a group of our Bristol team took on the Tough Mudder South West on 12th August 2023.

Mikhaila Simmons (Recruitment Lead), Millie Morfitt (Mentoring Lead), Poku Osei (CEO) and Qazzally Ali (Operations Coordinator) took part in this monumental challenge to raise awareness of, and funding for, our vital work supporting underrepresented young people achieve their aspirations.

They took on the 15k course, tackling a whopping 30 obstacles!

Mikhaila summed it up beautifully following their fantastic achievement: “From the war songs on the car journey to literally pushing and pulling each other over obstacles/barriers in our way, to the cuts, bumps, bruises and muddy faces that we couldn’t even wipe clean because our hands were even muddier, to the surprise “JUST KIDDING YOU’RE NOT DONE YET” sign at the 15K mark that almost made us cry… Thanks so much for the experience GUYS!

We were such a special team and encouraging each other when the going got tough, especially those obstacles where we had to stare fear directly in the face and do it anyway – I salute you all and am grateful to you because you’re the reason I made it to the end”.
