Curves Comox members helped raised over $60

Curves Comox members conquer Mudderella

Fundraiser for Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation raised over $60,000

Curves Comox members recently participated in Mudderella  at Whistler.

Mudderella is a team building mud obstacle course designed to challenge physically and mentally. It is also a fundraiser for local charities. Mudderella Whistler 2015 raised over $60,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  Teams are encouraged to stay together, helping each other on the course, so that everyone completes the challenges. There were mud pits, trenches, balance beams, walls and crawling challenges and lots of hill climbing.

Twelve Curves members trained for the event from May through September, learning  to run 5km and complete a series of exercises such as push-ups, lunges, jumping squats etc to build strength and endurance.

The team also maintained a minimum of three Curves workouts a week, including Jillian Michaels workouts.  Of the 12 members, 10 were able to participate on Sept. 26. All the training paid off, and all 10 teammates finished the course. There were three other Curves members participating on different local teams, and they also completed the course.

Team Curves had the early start time, and faced unstable weather for most of the course. Wind, rain and sleet were all part of the challenge, combined with lots of cold water and mud, but the team persevered. The final challenge was a steep slide into a pool of icy cold water, which had the benefit of rinsing some of the accumulated mud off.

 

“There were no major injuries, just a few sore muscles and scrapes and bruises,” a team spokesperson said. “We are all very proud of our accomplishments and several members have already committed to attending the event next year.”
