Event details:
My name is Adam Faris. On August 22-23 myself, and several other local participants, will be joining with hundreds of others around the world, to participate in “America’s Toughest Mudder“ 12-hour Virtual edition. This event is a virtual version of “America’s Toughest Mudder” in which participants will run 5 mile loops and complete various “challenges” provided by Tough HQ for 12-hours overnight, with the goal of completing as many 5 mile loops as possible within the 12hours. Because I am not normally a big fan of “Virtual” races, I have decided to make my 12-hours a little more interesting by making it for charity, with all proceeds going directly to local food banks, specifically Philabundance and The Food Bank of South Jersey. My goal is to raise $1,500 for each organization ($3,000 total goal). The original plan for this event was to have monetary donations collected, and also have non-perishable food dropped off at the event throughout the 12-hours.

However, unfortunately due to the current circumstances, local food banks are asking strictly for monetary donations at this time…therefore, this campaign right here is MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER! Myself, and members from the gym I own/operate, have always been big supporters of The Campout for Hunger and are all huge fans of the show and the station. Any mentions or promotions you’d be willing to give on air are greatly appreciated.

Donations or pledges for each 5-mile loop I complete can be made at: pledgeit.org/america-s-toughest-food-drive.
