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.
Since JAR of Hope is very close to the CATS family, we have a donation page set up with the hopes that we can get donations for them by our participation in the Tough Mudder Half. This truly is an incredible organization, so even if you are unable to donate, we ask that you browse their page to learn more about it. It’s an inspiring story.
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!
