BENEFITING: Dreams for Kids, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 06, 2012
We are group of 11 misfit co-workers working at tradethemarkets.com in Austin, TX. Founder, John Carter, threatened to fire all of us if we didn't participate in a race called tough mudder - a 12 mile, 25 military style obstacle course. In a desperate effort to keep our jobs we started working out in the garage, in the middle of the summer... in Austin, TX. The rumors are true - it's hot in Texas.
Somewhere between heat stroke, dehydration, and puking we realized that this would be a good time to raise money for a great cause. Plus this would be a way to overcome our mass denial that we are actually going through with this race. A little forced motivation is just what we needed. By sponsoring us we will have no choice, but to continue on this insane quest.
Our cause is the Dreams for Kids foundation. A children’s nonprofit, dedicated to replacing charity with opportunity and to the empowerment of at-risk youth. Dreams for Kids unites isolated young people to their diverse peers and empowers them through dynamic leadership programs and life-changing activities that inspires them to fearlessly pursue their dreams and compassionately change the world.
