EVENT: Tough Mudder Tri-State

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015

THE STORY:

Hello friends and family,

I would like to ask you for money.  WAIT, don't leave!  It's not the usual reasons (beer, tuition, etc).  This is for a good cause.  Here's my sales pitch: 

The sad thing is that I had to rearrange this section from the prepopulated generic appeal for funds.  By default, FIRST, it explained the "Tough Mudder", THEN it described the Wounded Warrior Project.  I've changed it around to reflect what our priorities should be:

(1) The heroes, then (2) the charity, then (3) the race.

Things that are not tough:

  • marshmallows
  • obstacle courses
  • me
  • Super Grover 2.0

Things that are tough (see link below):

  • Eric Schei, Army Sergeant, and his family
  • Mary McGriff, USAF Captain
  • Bill Jones, Army Chief Warrant Officer

The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization with the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. WWP programs are specifically structured to engage warriors, nurture their minds and bodies, and encourage their economic empowerment. Family members and caregivers are provided comfort, care, and education to help support the recovery of their injured warrior.

They've done their part, I'd like to do mine.  Help me help the heroes.  

Kind regards,

Patrick (a.k.a. Dr. Mudder)

Fun Fact 1:  Dr. Mudder is also the name of Mr. Clean's evil arch nemesis.

Fun Fact 2:  Fun fact 1, while certainly fun, is blatantly false.  I made it up, but I will talk to Proctor & Gamble about a comic series or graphic novel.

Tough Mudder

Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won't find anywhere else.
