Getting Down & Dirty For A Good Cause...
Published July 28th, 2012
GAINESVILLE - People ages 7 to 70 are getting down and dirty for a good cause.
A four mile obstacle course is the big challenge for these adventurous people and the event is called Superhero Scramble.
Five percent of the registration fees of the participants will be donated to the "Forgotten Soldiers Outreach" charity.
Robyn Goldman the founder of Superhero Scramble says the obstacle course not only honors veterans but helps people get over their fears.
"Because you may be super scared of jumping 15 feet up into a big pond of water but once you get over that, you're like wow I did that and I could do that again," Goldman said.
John Oldham, Community Relations Manager, says the event is for all typers of heroes.
"Not only are our armed forces service man and women who serve but its our veterans and then our local everyday heroes... You hear about them everyday and that is one of the greatest things about our organization," Oldham said.
The event is expected to happen again next year but for more information, click here.
