In each age group, there are a number of volunteers guiding and looking out of the kids.
All kids 2-6 are placed in the 200-yard muddy dash.
Kids 7-17 run a 1-mile obstacle course. Several adult assistants at each obstacle and along the trail.
All online pre-registrants will be notified via email the week prior to the event (Monday through Thursday) providing details for when to arrive and to confirm the time in which their age wave will run.
Lunch will be cooked on the grill and available for purchase. Also, we have fabulous entertainment planned for the entire day of Muddy Madness.
*Includes sandwich, chip, & water
Join us in Morton at the Westwood Park where kids will compete in a 200 Yard Dash! to the muddiest 1 mile obstacle course around to raise money for the St. Jude. Register today. Prepare to get dirty and have a lot of fun, too!
"No child should die in the dawn of life."
Our goal is to support the mission of St. Jude Runs and provide funds to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. These funds are to be used for the continued research and care of children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. One child saved at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital means thousands saved everywhere.
Families never receive a bill
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. More than 75% of operating costs must come from generous donors. Since it will cost approximately $1 billion to operate St. Jude this year, the generous donors participating in the Kids' Muddy Madness event helps St. Jude to focus on what matters most - saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
Congratulations to all of the 2023 Muddy Kids! You did an outstanding job getting muddy & fundraising for the kids of St. Jude! The grand total raised for St. Jude in 2023 was $92,440!!!
A huge thank you to our volunteers, business sponsors, St. Jude Runs office, Morton Park District, WEEK, AMP Radio Group, and our awesome fundraising Kids (& Parents) for helping to make this event so successful!
