Volunteering at Swampfoot was so much fun. We were at the Rope Swing obstacle where people swung over like Tarzan. I was there to help explain the obstacle and the objective it had. The objective was to get over the log, easier said than done. I helped people over by giving them a little push- this brought so much joy to their faces that they completed such a hard obstacle. Other board member filled up cups and handed out water to the runner. We all cheered them on with words of encouragement and PUMP up music was playing as they ran past. Another set of volunteers from MNSA was at the registration booth where they registered the volunteers and helped pin on their numbers, they got to see them before they became mud- soaked creatures! John the founder of Swampfoot donated $45 for every volunteer to the Lone Survivor Foundation. This Foundation helps to make families and war veterans have an easier transition from the battle field to everyday living. I am so happy I got to help out for such a great cause. My sunburn was so worth it, it was such an amazing experience, I cannot wait till next year to volunteer. Heck maybe I will even try to run the course myself!
