Event Information

How would YOU like to become a Champion for Children?  We have a team called Champions for Children who have volunteered their time to do an event known as the Tough Mudder. The Tough Mudder is a hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it is a way for us to raise awareness partnering with HOPEworldwide to raise money for children in Africa.  You can be a part of our team by making a tax deductible contribution to become the champion for a child through HOPE.
HOPEworldwide Kenya, is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to help the under-privileged. One of the main areas of concern in Kenya is orphans and vulnerable children. These beautiful children live in the over crowded, over populated slums of Nairobi; they are malnourished; lack proper medical care and education; come from broken homes whose parents are no longer living or who are terminally ill, not to mention the abuse and the lack of access to clean drinking water. Did you know that each and every time we flush the toilet, we are using more water than they have in an entire day?


To prepare for the event physically, spiritually, and financially, a workout group was created: Training on the EDGE. This group will be meeting about once a week to train and to brainstorm for fundraising activities. To get in touch with the group, please contact Corina Popescu. corina.a.popescu@gmail.com. Participation in the Tough Mudder event is not required to join Training on the EDGE.
