Financial Services Firm Gets Muddy for the Military

Financial services company, Coastal Credit Solutions, is sponsoring 25 people for the upcoming Camp Pendleton Mud Run on June 5, 2010.

San Diego, CA, May 13, 2010 --( No other 10k run includes geographical challenges such as Suicide Hill, Hay Bales, or a 30 foot mud pit. Camp Pendleton’s Mud Run, which benefits families of U.S. Marines through Marine Corps Community Services, is scheduled for June 5, 2010 and Coastal Credit Solutions will have 5 teams competing.

San Diego based financial services company, Coastal Credit Solutions, supports the military in many ways and has chosen the Mud Run as a way to get nearly half of their staff involved and showing their support for military families.

The popularity of the Mud Run increases every year and the 5,500 participant registrations sold out on January 1, 2010. Race organizer, Marine Corps Community Services, supports quality of life programs for Marines, Sailors and their families.

As part of their corporate giving program, the participation in Camp Pendleton’s Mud Run shows Coastal Credit Solutions’ continual commitment to giving back to the community. Last year alone, Coastal Credit Solutions contributed thousands of dollars to organizations on a national and local level.

“We work with people under strain on a daily basis,” says Brian Blackburn, Director of Operations at Coastal Credit Solutions, “and the families of our military personnel have a very heavy burden. The opportunity to support them and to get our staff knee-deep in mud is truly unqiue.”

Known for its challenging route, the Mud Run culminates with a 30 foot mud pit that welcomes participants to the finish line. After completing much of the grueling course, the mud pit is easily transformed to an area of play and camaraderie prior to crossing the finish line.

Prizes are awarded in military and civilian categories, but, for many of the teams, the real prize is getting everyone across the finish line and conquering the challenge together. Blackburn continues with a smile, “we’ve adapted a famous Marine credo for our teams, ‘leave no coworker behind.’”
