What the money is used for

Why am I raising money?
Ever since my first Tough Mudder I have embraced their mantra of teamwork and mental grit. The idea that we can overcome any obstacle as long as we work together is powerful. I have now set out to do my part, overcome obstacles, team with you and raise $1000.00 to donate to their partner charity Team Rubicon.
What is Team Rubicon?
Tough Mudder’s official US charity partner is Team Rubicon, the only nonprofit disaster response organization that mobilizes military veterans to support communities devastated by natural disasters. They deliver disaster response services to mitigate hazards, clear dangerous debris and provide emergency home repair. By tapping into the valuable skills of veterans and giving them an opportunity to continue their service, Team Rubicon fosters a newfound sense of purpose, community and identity. Tough Mudder and Team Rubicon are united by a shared vision: harness the power of teamwork and community to tackle life’s challenges head on. They're committed to making an incredible impact in the world. Donation Matching: For each Mudder who raises $150 for Team Rubicon, Tough Mudder will donate $15.
What is Tough Mudder?
Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it’s a challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.
