    Goodness what a month its been here at Whalley Physiotherapy in terms of our 15 Challenges to celebrate 15 years of Whalley Physiotherapy!

    Anne has completed summit 5/15 so is a third of the way through her challenge! She managed to conquer Cow Hill whilst on her Scottish jaunt.

    Becca completed Manchester’s Pretty Muddy at the weekend with two far fitter running friends. She is loved the mud however the speed her friends made her run at was terrifying and has decided that it truly was a huge challenge not to start a mud fight with them 😉

    Jane rode the Kitzbühelhorn! This is 7 kilometers of solid uphill riding with 18 bends! Deffinately not one for the faint hearted.

    Finally and very impressively, a huge congratulations to patients Lexie and Jenny who battled through injury and took on a mammoth challenge in completing an Olympic Triathlon which consisted of 1500 metre swim, 10 kilometre run and 40 kilometre cycle in aid of Sue Ryder. What an amazing achievement to you both and your friends & family! ‪#‎whalleyphysio15

    Just a quick update for those folks that are following the antics here at Whalley Physio for our 15th Birthday celebrations.

    Harry has completed his first challenge It was a 30-mile (48-km) hike across upland Dartmoor. The challenge is usually completed by Royal Marine officers, who must also navigate the route themselves. A group of 6 of his family did it across 2 days and stayed in Princetown over night in a pub for a refuel!

    Marty and Jane completed their amazing 5k Blackpool Race for Life on what must have been the hottest day of the summer! Marty has struggled with a bad back for years and would never have thought to do a run, never mind a 5km. It shows what you can do – and in doing so has raised more than £800 for cancer research.

    Jane, Becca and 9 of our fabulous patients completed the Guild Wheel Challenge which turned out to be a delightful 22 mile ride around gorgeous countryside and required Coffee and cake at the end to celebrate!

    Finally in this hectic period of challenges the Whalley Physio staff (and a couple of “willing” husbands) redecorated and refreshed the whole clinic in a day. A huge thank you to all of the team that gave up their Sunday and made Whalley Physio look bright and new!5K Run
