Local men take on Tough Mudder for good cause


They also managed to work and be with their families all while training. “A lot of our training was done while people were sleeping,” Castetter said.

The men said their families have been extremely supportive and three wives are attending the Mudder as support. “The way our wives have been supportive is just huge,” Olson said. “This takes us away from our family a lot.”

But they feel rescuing kids from human trafficking and sexual slavery is worth their sacrifices. “We have a reason to keep going,” Olson said. “Every lap we run is $125 toward rescuing a girl. So that’s motivation.”

Other team sponsors include Nutrition Station, Scott Signs, Metro Run & Walk and John Darr.

To make a donation to the team so it can be donated to Destiny Rescue, email either a flat rate pledge amount or a per lap commitment pledge to wtm4destinyrescue@gmail.com. On Sunday after the race, the team will send an email update and let everyone know how the did and given information on howto send tax-deductible donations directly to Destiny Rescue.
