Bridlington's Steve Tighe Tackles World's Toughest Mudder

Bridlington's Steve Tighe Tackles World's Toughest Mudder

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 8:11am 13th November 2019.

Bridlington's Steve Tighe will this weekend take part in his 5th World's Toughest Mudder and this time it's in memory of his friend Peave Bellerby.

Peave has been Steve's 'Pit Support' in previous World Toughest Mudders and was due to fly out to Atlanta today with him but tragically died of cancer earlier this year. 

Steve told Paddy In The Morning earlier that this will be his last World's Toughest Mudder:

"I started my first one in 2013. Each time we've raised loads of money for different charities. We've done it for Yorkshire Cancer, Alzhemiers, Help For Heroes, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Group B Strep Support and I'm just shy of £30,000 from over the years. We're doing it in Peave's memory this year and to raise money for Cancer Research and the Candlelighters, the children's cancer unit in Leeds".

Peave was very popular locally and Steve says it's for that reason that the Bridlington community has been so generous in supporting his challenge this year:

"It's been incredible the response for how well loved Peave was in the town and in the local community. Business-wise, all the people that have supported us, we're at £19,500 which is absolutely massive. It's the biggest amount we've ever raised. Our target is now £20,000."
