MuckFest® MS Jacksonville 5K Mud and Fun Run
WAY TO GO, JACKSONVILLE!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Jacksonville! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect start to the 2014 MuckFest® MS season: muck-tacularly awesome muckers and incredible volunteers, a boatload of enthusiastic, cheering friends and family, and gorgeous weather. The rain in the run-up to MuckFest MS Jacksonville primed the course for maximum muckiness. And a special shout-out to the couple who decided to muck it with us on the morning of their very own wedding day—congratulations on your muck-nuptials! We now pronounce you and all your fellow runners, "Mucking Awesome!"
A special message from the North Florida Chapter of the National MS Society. Thank you for coming out and making MuckFest MS Jacksonville such a great success. The National MS Society, North Florida Chapter would like to thank all the runners, volunteers and staff who came out to run, help and support each other on Saturday. 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 or call the chapter.
