EVENT: Tough Mudder Tri-State 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
I am a two time Tough Mudder and I decided that I wanted to do a third. This time around I can't find any friends crazy enough to do this with me. Instead I am going to run this with Team Purple. Team purple will all be raising money for pancratic cancer. This is the same disease that took my grandfather (Tattoo) from me to early. I know Tattoo is going to make sure that I make it through this tough challange, and raise lots of money to take steps in the right direction to find a cure!

Pancreatic cancer is now ranked as the 3rd deadliest cancer in the U.S., and researchers estimate that it will reach 2nd place by 2020. With no cure, no early detection methods, subtle symptoms, and the lowest five-year survival rate of all the top 10 cancers (only 8%), this cancer is a nasty beast. Joining the Project Purple team means you’re going to be part of something that’s more than the sweat, mud, and determination it takes to cross the finish line. You’re going to be part of the fight to beat pancreatic cancer.
