As Project Ark kicks off, youth across the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of London have taken up the Tough Mudder 5K challenge. On the 5th of May 2019, the lads will put themselves through the ultimate physical test. Tough Mudder is described as the craziest, muddiest, toughest, teamwork-inspired challenge on the planet. So why are they doing this? After hearing about the exciting Project Ark, they decided they had to get involved and contribute to the project with your help. Find out more below and see how you can support these troopers.
