On October 8, 2016, the CATS team will be taking their teamwork out of the office to participate in the Tough Mudder Half at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ.
For those of you who don’t know, the Tough Mudder Half is a 5-mile obstacle course, with 14+ obstacles to overcome. But the race will not be the only thing on our minds as we battle through mud pits, steep climbs, and tough terrain. The CATS team will also be competing for JAR of Hope.
JAR of Hope, aka Team Jamesy, is an organization whose main focus is to spread awareness and raise money to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder that affects young children, more specifically young boys. Since children with DMD cannot produce dystrophin, which is a protein that is needed for muscle function and strength, every skeletal muscle in their body begins to deteriorate. To find out more about this incredible organization, visit their website: http://jarofhope.org/
Since JAR of Hope is very special to the CATS family, we have set up a Go Fund Me page with the hopes that we can get donations for them by our participation in the Tough Mudder Half. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated and can be made here:
We will be sporting our custom made team “Thundercats” t-shirts – modeled after the popular TV series – in case anyone wants to come out and watch us in action!
Thanks for your support!
