Hundreds expected for American Cancer Society mud run

Hundreds expected for American Cancer Society mud run

DAVIESS CO., KY (WFIE) - The American Cancer Society and many volunteers have spent months putting together a fundraiser in Daviess County that will bring you to your knees.

The volunteers are finishing building a course for a 5-K mud run called "Up, Down, and Dirty for a Cure."

Runners run through the country side and encounter 25 different military style obstacles.

The $40 sign up will go towards cancer research grants and American Cancer Society programs.

"My mission is to find a cure for cancer so I can go to the next cure," said Anna Way, American Cancer Society Relay for Life Specialist.

"I'm very excited about that. I think we're getting close. We've made lots of head room and just want us to find a cure someday."

The event will be on September 19, 2015 at Diamond Lake Resort in Daviess County.

Organizers say the mud run two years ago raised around $16,000.

You can sign up at www.owensboromudrun.org.
