My son Zack and I, along with 8 friends, will be doing the Tough Mudder Challenge at the end of July ! This has been on my bucket list for a long time -- in fact our team name is "The Bucket List Gang."
What is a Tough Mudder?
It is a 5 mile run with 13 different obstacles like climbing a 16 foot wall, crawling through tunnels submerged in water and traversing mud filled pits with barriers! (Dirty Fun!)
Now the donation part....
Tough Mudder is more of a challenge than a race; it's about teamwork and helping those around you reach their goals and surpass their own expectations, which is why we're running this event to raise money for an incredible organization that shares these principles!
Artistic Noise exists to bring the freedom and power of artistic practice to young people who are incarcerated, on probation, or otherwise involved in the justice system, through visual arts and entrepreneurship programs in Massachusetts and New York.
My family and I have been involved with Artistic Noise since the beginning and have seen its incredible impact on youth artists over close to two decades.
So, no pressure (!!), but if you feel inclined to donate at any level, the team and I want to raise a minimum of $600 to support Artistic Noise and make the most of our challenge.
As we climb over barriers and swim through mud we will thank you!
