Strawberrysoup does Vertical Rush!

5 of us have signed up as a team to complete the Vertical Rush challenge in 7 weeks today, raising money for Shelter.

42 flights of stairs, 932 steps, as quickly as possible… Sounds fun right?!

A typical day at Strawberrysoup involves a lot of talking about and eating food and not so much running up stairs, so it will definitely be a challenge. But a rewarding one when we make it to the top of Tower 42! Even more rewarding when we can help raise money for a great cause too.

Shelter has helped people experiencing homelessness and bad housing and campaigned against these issues since 1966. Their vision is that everyone should have a home – somewhere decent, safe, affordable and permanent. It’s as simple as that, and is something many of us take for granted.

Sponsoring Team Strawberrysoup for Vertical Rush will help Shelter to continue to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing and make us completing this challenge worthwhile!! If you can, please donate at:

We’ll be posting ‘training’ updates, pics and videos throughout the next 7 weeks, and of course updates from the day too. Luckily Percol will be there providing coffee to help get us up those stairs!

Thanks in advance for your sponsorship – and wish us luck!
