Registration for the 2017 Charlotte Fun Mud Run is now available. Muck Fest MS is a mud run that takes place in several places across the U.S. to support MS (Multiple Sclerosis) research. This mud run will be held at the Concord Speedway Saturday, May 6th. Beginning at 9:00 a.m. the first wave of runners will start, and the following waves of runners will begin every 20 minutes. The cost of registration is currently $80, although it will go up to $105 on the day of the event.
So where is your money going? Aside from a day of laughs and muddy clothes, your money will be going to support the National MS Society to advance cutting-edge MS research. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.The cause of MS is still unknown, but scientists believe the disease is triggered by as-yet-unidentified environmental factor in a person who is genetically predisposed to respond.The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.(http://www.nationalmssociety.org)
