The ABC Eastern Pennsylvania
chapter joined more than 6,000 other runners in early June as they took part in the largest MuckFest for MS event of the year in Philadelphia, Pa.
The chapter raised more than $3,000 for MuckFest for MS
, which is an annual mud and obstacle fun-run which raises money and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
The ABC Eastern Pennsylvania team of 50 chapter staff, member companies, families and friends ran, slid and climbed through the five-mile course with more than 20 obstacles including a motorized rope swing, crawling through tubes, jumping off platforms into water, running across see-saws, a human spider web, and horizontal rock climbing.
“It rained almost all day Friday and lived up to the MuckFest name,” said ABC Eastern Pennsylvania’s Public Relations Manager, Jessica Pomraning. “In past years mainly the obstacles were muddy but this year the course was solid mud except a few hundred feet of pavement, which was a welcome sight.”
ABC National’s Director of Safety, Chris Williams, also participated in the run held in Philadelphia. His team raised more than $1,100.
