Jacksonville Asphalt Manufacturing Plant Supports MS Mud Run
The MS Mud Run Jacksonville is a 10K, military-style obstacle course race, the majority of which is covered in mud.
Duval Asphalt was proud to support this year’s MS Mud Run. What began with three teams of runners and providing our entertainment rig for on-site food and beverage concessions, quickly turned into Duval Asphalt becoming fully engrossed in the planning, construction and support for the 2010 event. In addition to the on-site concessions and teams (which netted more than $5,000 for the cause), Duval Asphalt provided food for over 200 volunteers, assisted with road repair and construction of the 10K obstacle course and constructed and sponsored the Duval Asphalt Pit Fall obstacle. More than $15,000 in food, services and funds raised at this event went directly to the North Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS-NFL).
Duval Asphalt is extremely proud of all of our volunteers and of our three teams: The Duval Asphalt Mudweiser Guys, The Mudweiser Girls, and the River City Mud Snakes, with an extra congratulations going out to the Duval Asphalt Mudweiser Girls for coming in First Place for the Women’s race.
NMSS-NFL’S second annual MS Mud Run Jacksonville was held on March 20, 2010. This year’s event more than tripled in size from 2009. Topping out at 2,800 runners, the 2010 Mud Run raised more than $300,000. The 2009 Mud Run, which was hailed by NMSS-NFL President Jennifer Lee as the most successful fundraiser of last year attracted just over 900 participants and raised approximately $120,000.
