To Our Current Participants & Those New to Our Event:
The past few weeks have been challenging for our area, our country, and the entire world, as we’ve adjusted to the realities of the virus COVID-19 and its prevention requirements. After carefully monitoring the unfolding situation, and considering the safety of our wonderful participants, we have made the difficult, and heartbreaking, decision to cancel the Daniel Barden Mudfest 2020 event.
We did not make this decision lightly, as Mudfest has always been about finding the light in dark places, and choosing kindness and empathy above all else. We would not be honoring these values if we put your safety at risk right now.
We want to stress how much we value you as a participant. We appreciate that you may have already registered for the event with us, and we hope you will consider donating your registration. Please know your registration fee/donation goes to the Daniel Barden Adventure Scholarship, which allows children from New York and Connecticut to participate in a totally unplugged camping experience for a week in the summer. And, part of the registration fee is donated to each camper’s favorite charity. However, if you so choose, we will refund your registration fee in full.
We thank you for your understanding during this trying and unpredictable time in our country. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, and be well, friends.
Dan and Melissa
This mud run event was started in memory of Daniel Barden, who was one of the first-graders killed in the Sandy Hook, CT tragedy in December 2012. A niece of the organizers of this event was inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School that day. She escaped unharmed, but lost her dear friend Daniel that day.
Daniel is remembered as a kind, gentle child who was polite to everyone and had a zest for life. He loved the outdoors, sports and getting muddy. MudFest memorializes Daniel by providing scholarship opportunities and charitable giving from the proceeds of this race.
