“I’m absolutely convinced that people who sign up for things like the Tough Mudder run aspired to be Pigpen when they read Peanuts as children. I always aspired to be Red Baron, which is why I sign up for activities that allow me to sit atop houses pretending to fly a plane (and I wait, eagerly, for these activities to present themselves). Either way, it was pretty great to have a childhood where you could just sit around reading comics. That brings us to The Race For A Cure Mud Run to support pediatric cancer research, the only muddy run I will endorse. The two-mile run is open to seasoned mud runners, as well as families, and anyone over the age of 6 (though kids under 13 need to be accompanied by an adult). Proceeds go toward two nonprofit organizations, Hope & Heroes and the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The organizers suggest bringing water, a change of clothes and a towel–and a positive attitude.”
Sunday June 7, Purchase College Campus, 735 Anderson Hill Road, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., $40.
