The Mudrun Is Happening Even Though the Sponsorships Didn't!

Hey y'all!

It's been a while since we last saw each other! There have been fall festivals & cat-stuff galore between posts, boy let me tell ya.

I got onto the front page of the Wise County Messenger which is some pretty sweet publicity & I've increased my social media followers to over 30,000 people!

Holy balloons!

Even with all that heat, the project didn't really take root like I had hoped or planned. Throughout the whole ordeal, I recieved ONE sponsorship and even THAT came from our senior volunteers, J.D. & Lisa Thompson, after I told them that I didn't have any sponsorships & they felt bad for me. Ooof.

I think all the stuff with sponsorships & t-shirts was too complicated & also times are tight. Let's not forget the fact that if people want to donate to CARE, they'll just donate to CARE. Either way, I'm doing the mudrun & I'm going to represent CARE, & if people want to donate to the facility because they heard of me doing ice-plunges & box jumps then so be it! I changed up the sponsorship section to a plain-jane donate section & that's that!

Speaking of box jumps, by the way, I slammed my opposite leg on the SAME concrete culvert during workouts the other day (not parkour!) I didn't need stitches, but my initial thought was, "Not again!!!"

I'm doing the mudrun in two weeks, I'm scared as hell, but I said I was going to do it, and I'm going to do it.

  1. You rock! I found you on Vine and you inspired me to donate. I absolutely love seeing all the cats everyday. I hope to come out to visit sometime in spring and I'll be routing you on in spirit in two weeks!
