Jo Nickless from St. Albans will be taking on Peace Hospice Care's obstacle course, Push It for the Peace, on the 24th September.

 The muddy obstacle run is back again in Chiswell Green, St. Albans, featuring over 30 obstacles along the 5 mile cross country route.

Jo Nickless is completing the challenge in memory of her Dad, Gary, who passed away in, Watford based, Peace Hospice Care's Inpatient Unit in 2012. Jo, who is the team leader of 'My Dad's Army', said: "This year Push It for the Peace will take place on Dad's birthday weekend. To celebrate his birthday, my friends and I are taking on this muddy obstacle course as it's the perfect way to give back for all the care he received.

"For the third year, my friend, Dave, and I are hosting Sunfest. A day of music and fundraising where we split the money raised between Cancer Research UK and Peace Hospice Care, as both charities are close to our hearts. This year, I will be raising sponsorship for Push It for the Peace through this event. My family and I try to support the Hospice as much as we can as the support that dad and our family received during a tough time was incredible."

Pete Watson, Events and Community Manager at Peace Hospice Care, said: "This is the fifth year that we are holding the obstacle course and it's the perfect opportunity for people looking for a challenge to take part and support the Hospice.
