Muddy Mates will run for mini mates!
On the 19th of April the first Muddy Mates run will take place in Spaarnwoude, Velsen (near Amsterdam) and they will be raising money for children's charity Spieren voor Spieren.
Jeff Povlo (organizer Muddy Mates): "I think that every child should be able to run and play carefree. Spieren voor Spieren is a great cause and we hope to raise as much money as possible so they can continue the great work they do for kids with a muscular disease.”
Muddy Mates contestants will be able to raise money for their run via http://muddymates.spierenvoorspieren.nl/ The money that is raised will be used for the organization of the Spieren voor Spierendag, their yearly event for kids with a muscular disease on Sunday the 14th of September in Ouwehands Dierenpark in Rhenen. Jasper Hunting from Spieren for Spieren: "It is a great match, we like the fact that Muddy Mates encourages a healthy lifestyle and makes it possible to have fun and get active!"
Muddy Mates’ very special ambassador is called Olivia Goodrum, a 6 year old girl with a muscle disease called SMA type 3. Olivia will kick of the race together with Muddy Mates’ host Veronica van Hoogdalem. For more info on Olivia: http://www.spierenvoorspieren.nl/voor-wie-sport-jij/olivia/
Muddy Mates is one of the muddiest but most approachable 5k mud obstacle runs in The Netherlands. It’s an event for all ages and sexes with even a separate family-friendly 500m Mini Muddy Course for the ages 4-11 (accompanied by a parent). The mud run event, which will have the look and feel of a day out at a festival, will also include live music, entertainment and a great food offering. There will be many activities for those who don't want to get dirty but still want to join in the fun.
Muddy Mates is a one-day event on Saturday 19th of April from 11.00 to 20.00 at Spaarnwoude in Velsen (near Amsterdam).
