If you haven't heard by now, there are a few of us social networkers that have a crazy idea that we can raise $2,000 for wounded veterans by taking part in the "toughest obstacle course in the world." We've signed up for the Tough Mudder event (a 10 mile test of our souls) that's taking place in just under a week. We've trained for months, prepared ourselves mentally and only have one thing left to do... obtain your support.

I won't include a long blog post that talks about how difficult this log-carrying, fire-running, lake-swimming, electrical-shock-having, 10 mile run is going to be. No, I won't try and impress you with our level of insanity. I won't even tell you that less than 50% of the participants are expected to finish this 3hr event. You won't find a single mention of the crawling through pipes and under wires and hill climbing that we'll have to complete. Hey, that's not what this post is about.

This entry is to share our goal - which is within the spirit of the event and it's worthy cause through the Wounded Warrior Project. Quite simply, to finish together as a team. The teamwork that our small group, the Social Mudders, plan to display will be in the spirit of the event in that finishing together is more important that racing each other.

So if you're reading this, I'm asking you to take only a few moments and donate just $5 to our team and then pass along the article through your own social channels. The upside is that you'll be donating to the team that is currently in the lead for the most funds raised - and keeping them out front to show the power of partnering social networks with worthy charitable causes.

Your Help (it's so easy!):
  1. Simply head to the event page on RaceIt.com and search for our team, Social Mudders and then a member to donate under. It's quick and couldn't be easier to show your support.
  2. Share this article via Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn knowing that every time you do, you're assisting the Wounded Warrior Project to aid injured and recovering veterans and their families.

Some fun encouragement for support from our friends at www.iwearyourshirt.com
