This Saturday is the Tough Mudder fundraising party at the Cardiff Lounge benefiting the Wounded Warriors Project. I’ve been following my friend Denise’s incredible training for the Tough Mudder event in October. This is no ordinary race and the training she’s doing is just crazy! Here’s how they describe the Tough Mudder event on their website:
Tough Mudder is the TOUGHEST one day event on the planet. This is not your average mud run or boring, spirit-crushing road race. It’s Ironman meets Burning Man: our 7-12 mile obstacle courses are designed by British Special Forces to test all around toughness, strength, stamina, fitness, camaraderie, and mental grit. Forget about your finish time. This is about camaraderie, teamwork, and helping your fellow Mudders. Simply completing the event is a badge of honor. Not everyone will finish, but those who do make it to our post-event party will have truly earned the right to call themselves a Tough Mudder. All Tough Mudder sponsorship proceeds go to our exclusive charity partner, The Wounded Warrior Project.
I take my dog for leisurely walks every day. I would never even pretend to be able to do something like that! But we were just invited to donate a cake to the help “ASD Wolfpack“, Denise’s team, that’s tackling the challenge and hosting a fundraising party at the Cardiff Lounge this Saturday. Baking and decorating is the challenge we’re up for. And you could bid on a $195 gift certificate towards one of our cakes. Some of the other auction items include massages, wine, Sharks tickets, signed NFL memorabilia, and so much more.
The fundraising party sounds like a fun even with music, dancing, the silent auction, and special drinks for the occasion with proceeds going directly to the Wounded Warrior Project. So head to the Cardiff Lounge in Campbell on Saturday, September 11th from 6-8 pm. As the poster says, “Are you tough enough to party?”
