THANK YOU, Denver!
Check out this episode of the The Adventure Sports Podcast featuring Michael Pierce, Denver mucker, Top Fundraiser, and team captain of Muckin' for Michael's Mom.
Well, Denver, that certainly takes the cake!
We started out the week with snow blanketing Larkspur, but by the time Saturday rolled around, the snow was gone and the course was primed for premium muck-osity. It was muddy from the get-go with the sloppiest Muckin' Corral, Start Line and Triple Pits in MuckFest® MS history. But that's just the beginning. We had one of the most enthusiastic volunteer groups ever, and they kept the event humming in more ways than one! We also had some firsts, including the first time that four human bananas ran the course. We also had a team carry a cake throughout the entire course without dropping it (why not?); we're just glad their balance didn't dessert them (sorry about that). Big thanks to our largest team of the 2015 season so far: Muckin' for Michael's Mom (M4MM), led by team captains Michael Pierce (Top Fundraiser) and Ledia Karst, which had a total team membership of 196 and was the top fundraising team for MuckFest MS Denver. Sincere thanks to our course hosts in Larkspur and our local presenting sponsor, MAD Greens, for providing some tremendously tasty and healthy treats, and for posting this muck-tacular video. And thanks again, Denver, for making it mucking unforgettable and picture-perfect!
A special message from the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National MS Society.
Thank you for coming out and making MuckFest MS Denver 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” and help us reach our fundraising goal. Make a donation online at www.MuckFestMS.com or call the chapter.

You Can Be a Muckety Muck
You probably noticed the signs on the course honoring the members of the Muckety Muck Club, which honors our top fundraisers. What you might not realize is that the Muckety Muck Club is something that you can qualify for after the event. And because of that, the rewards and perks of being a Muckety Muck go on all year through to the next season. So, don't stop fundraising now, not when you can still be a Muckety Muck!
