OVERVIEW:

LUVMUD is so much more than a race–it’s an event! Specifically, it’s a benefit event that merges an epic 5k with an obstacle course, a mud race, music and other festivities. The event supports Habitat for Hope, a non-profit organization that is committed to providing assistance to families who have traveled to the Mid-South seeking treatment for their chronically ill children.

The Purpose:

We get muddy for a reason. Our purpose: Habitat for Hope.

Habitat for Hope exists to serve those who have traveled to the mid-south for the medical care of a child with serious or long-term illness.  Volunteers and staff work together to form a community around these families, committing to a relationship that extends far beyond the child’s illness. From helping with meals, lodging, transportation, and anything in between, the love and care provided knows no bounds, and the relationships forged can last a lifetime. Since being recognized as a non-profit in 2005, Habitat for Hope has served over 400 families.

Habitat for Hope’s vision is to expand their services to other communities across the nation, and to create a facility in Memphis that will give access to families from all over the world as a place of  respite, hospice, and long-term lodging. Each participant in the LUVMUD family of races is helping to make the goals of Habitat for Humanity become a reality, so you can wear that mud with pride.
