Props to Philly & Portland!
Last month, runners from Philly quadrupled participation numbers from 2010, conquered the 10K obstacle course, and raised more than $800,000 for people living with MS in the Philadelphia area. Also in June, participants sloshed through the Sherwood Forest in Portland, OR after raising a minimum of $100 each for the National MS Society. Team Underpants, Team Amulet’s Itty Bitty Gritty Committee, Team Dirty Minds, and the MudWeisers all handed in soggy wads of DIRTY money and, as a result, people living with Multiple Sclerosis might move through their own obstacles with a little more ease and agility. Thousands of FILTHY athletes enabled researchers to continue developing new medications which ease the pain of those affected by MS and slow the disease’s progression. Thank you Philly and Portland for working your way through the mud toward a cure!
