St. Louis Mud Run Makes Donation to The Backstoppers

Fifth bi-annual race raises $5,000 for organization.

St. Louis, MO, October 25, 2014 --( The Battlegrounds at Cedar Lake, the Midwest’s only permanent mud run obstacle course, recently held its fifth bi-annual race and raised $5,000 for The BackStoppers.

The BackStoppers is a non-profit organization founded in 1959 to support the families of fallen heroes in the greater St. Louis region. The group uses their funding to emotionally and financially assist families of police, firefighters and EMS/EMT personnel that are dealing with the loss of their first responder.

“We are truly excited that our fund raising efforts benefited such a vital organization,” said Carl Bolm, owner of The Battlegrounds and Cedar Lake Cellars winery and event venue. “Everyone, including the 1,300 mud runners and The BackStoppers, was a winner in terms of having a fun time while supporting a worthwhile cause.”

The Battlegrounds is located at 950 State Highway 00 in Wright City, Mo. next to Cedar Lake Cellars winery and event center. The mud run is held on the first Saturdays in May and October. For more information, call Bob Holm at (314) 569-3005.
