Getting dirty racing to cure to MS

| No Comments

By: Angela Wendler

Three thousand runners came together to run, jump and climb through 10 kilometers of mud to raise money for the multiple sclerosis fight for a cure.

The Mud Run is an annual fundraiser for MS research. Each registered participant is required to pay a $60 enrollment fee and is expected to earn another $100 in donations.

Anna Kucera, senior marketing manager for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, told the Minnesota Daily that this year's Mud Run raised over $500,000, which was double last year's total. All of the money will be donated to MS research and to programs for people who suffer from the fatal disease.

The Sun reports that nearly all of the 2011 Mud Run participants and spectators promised to come back next year to race again and continue to fight to cure MS.
