Good ol’ muddy fun
Father’s Day this year found nearly 500 “mudders” and 125 volunteers taking part in the Cedarburg Education Foundation’s third annual U.S. Bank and CEF Mini Mudder – an opportunity for families to run, jog, walk, crawl, slip and slide through the mud for a good cause. The nearly 2-mile course took place at Cedarburg High School. The event raised funds for the CEF. The organization provides a means for schools, individuals and businesses to work together to help students achieve their potential by providing financial support through private funding.
