Last Saturday, you and 2,000 spirited muckers made the 2019 MuckFest® New Jersey an absolutely epic event! Though Mother Nature thwarted our original MuckFest plans, you rallied like the champions you are and came together for a day we won't soon forget.
Our new and improved Slippy Sloppy slide made for some truly stupendous splashing. The bursts of water on Shake & Quake caught more than a few of you off guard. But the biggest hit of all was surely this year's brand new obstacle: Muck 'N Roll! You embraced the spirit of teamwork to help each other over those crazy logs and laugh your way face-first into the muddy pool.
Thanks to all the fundraisers who helped raise over $300,000 (and counting) for the National MS Society. Leading the way were the top fundraising individuals and teams, listed below, who truly went above and beyond to make this event a phenomenal success.
We'd like to give a special shout-out to our largest team, Mucky Blues (over 170 members strong!), our top fundraising team, Whoa Wyatt, and our top individual fundraiser, Michael Rentner. We also want to extend our gratitude to the 100+ incredible volunteers that came out to support the event. Thank you all, from the bottom of our mucky hearts!
We'd like to thank all the runners, volunteers, spectators, and sponsors who came out to support each other this weekend. You inspire us to work hard every day of the year to support people living with multiple sclerosis, and to fulfill our vision of a world free of MS.
There is still time to support the mission behind the “muck.” We've made incredible progress so far and we want to keep that momentum going after the event. Make a donation online today.
