Mud in Your Eye

Wolf Run with Wolf Eyewear

You would think that optical professionals are the last group of people wanting to get mud in their eyes! But, at the end of June, Amy Coleburne and Mark Nevey of Leicestershire based opticians, Edmonds & Slatter set themselves the challenge of completing the notoriously muddy Wolf Run.

They were part of a 45-person team assembled by the aptly named spectacle frame company Wolf Eyewear.

10k Challenge for various charities

The Wolf Run itself is a 10k challenge featuring a series of obstacles, including mud runs, lake swims, and muddy slides. The team of optical industry colleagues were also helping to raise money for three charities: Vision Care for Homeless People, The Brain Tumour Charity, and Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Muddy, but the colours shine through!

Mark, Dispensing Optician and Glenfield practice manager, referenced the high mud content of the race commenting “Although the team completed the Wolf Run all in one shade of brown, that is a far cry from the appeal of Wolf Eyewear frames in our practices.” He continued “Wolf frames are synonymous with creatively matched vibrant colours and our patients love them!”

Well done Amy and Mark

Amy and Mark had taken part in other events including marathons and a Spartan Race between them, but this was their first Wolf Run. Both successfully completed the challenge without injury or loss of footwear in the ‘mudsucker’.

Extra funds for chosen charities

The Wolf Eyewear team to date has raised over £3600 for their chosen charities. If you would like to view any of the colourful frames in the Wolf Eyewear collection, please visit Edmonds & Slatter Opticians at Blaby, Glenfield, Lutterworth, Kibworth or Rothley.
