Anna gets stuck into the mud for a good cause

Bray People - - NEWS -

ANNA CHOUISKAIA from Bray got down and dirty when she joined Princess War­rior, Louise Lough­lin from Leitrim at Ire­land’s first ever Mud Run in aid of Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis Ire­land.

More than 400 peo­ple from all over the coun­try got mud-soaked in the Mud Run at Mon­dello Park last Satur­day, which was sup­ported by Per­sil. Anna and the other par­tic­i­pants ran 5km cross-coun­try through mud­pits, wa­ter pools and un­der and over tricky ob­sta­cles to help raise over €60,000 for the char­ity.

‘The Mud Run was a to­tally new fundrais­ing con­cept for us and Ire­land,’ said David Allen of MS Ire­land. ‘The event was def­i­nitely for those seek­ing a chal­leng­ing but fun and ex­cit­ing race. We’ve been blown away by the re­sponse and huge gen­eros­ity from every­one. The amount of money raised has com­pletely ex­ceeded our ex­pec­ta­tions.’

All the funds will go di­rectly to help peo­ple and their fam­i­lies liv­ing with Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis across the coun­try.
