HOUSTON, WE HAVE LIFTOFF!
On a warm Saturday, under a big blue Lone Star sky, over 1,500 runners, 150 volunteers and thousands of spectators gathered at Royal Purple Raceway to propel MuckFest MS Houston into the upper stratosphere of muck-tacularity!
It was a super-charged event from start to finish, fueled by that proprietary Houston blend of high-octane mud-thusiasm and HI-larious #MudZone heroics. And the fun didn't stop at the finish line. You kept the MuckFestival, refreshed by Traveler Beer, bumpin' with an impressive assortment of post-run shenanigans.
A big THANK YOU to all the fundraising individuals and teams. A special Thank You to our top two fundraising teams, Dirty Dudes and Divas and Boo’s Mucking Squad, for going above and beyond and for working so hard to capture the top spots. (See all the Top Fundraising Individuals and Teams.)
We not only had more runners than last year, we also had an incredible number of volunteers: over 150! We thank all the volunteers for their hard work with a special shout out to the awesome groups that helped make the muck-magic happen: Chavez High School National Honor Society students, the Spanish Club from Impact High School, the Village School and the PT Day of Service group. Thanks also to all the Volunteer Captains who jumped in with both feet to help make the event a rip-roaring success.
Thanks again to the good folks at Royal Purple Raceway for being such a great event partner.
Thank you for coming out and making the 2016 MuckFest MS Houston such a great success. We would like to thank all the runners, volunteers and staff who came out to run, help and support each other this weekend. Every day of the year, we work hard to support people living with multiple sclerosis.
There is still time to support the mission behind the “muck”. We've made incredible progress so far and we want to keep that momentum going after the event. Make a donation online or call us.
