The “Racing Humans” 5K run has announced that it will donate 10% of all regular registration fees to The Fallen Patriot Fund of The Mark Cuban Foundation. The Racing Humans event is a 5K “mud run” on July 2, 2011 at the nationally ranked Three Palms Extreme Sports Park in Conroe.

The Fallen Patriot Fund was established to help families of U.S. military personnel who were killed or seriously injured during military operations in Iraq. Financial resources are vital to help the families of those armed forces members who have made an extreme or the ultimate sacrifice.

According to Racing Humans promoter Emil Schebelbon, “the reason we picked The Fallen Patriot Fund is because it honors the sacrifice of our military and 100% of the funds go directly to the benefiting military families. Running our 5K Racing Humans mud run during the Fourth of July holiday in Texas will be no easy challenge, but it hardly compares to the sacrifice made by our military.”

Brian Cuban agrees that the Racing Humans event is a good fit for The Fallen Patriot Fund. “The Racing Humans mud run seems like 5K of pure insanity and extreme exercise, but donating 10% of each regular registrant’s $50 entrance fee is a great way to celebrate July Fourth and the military which have made incredible sacrifices.”

The Racing Humans event is a thrill seeker’s dream adventure run! It is an extreme sport mud run that is 5K in length with 10 different obstacles: Mud Mountain, Dumpster Dune, Tire Torture, the Pit of Despair, Hell Hills, Water Boarding, the Belly Crawl, High Step Over, Tarzan and the Alligator Alley pond swim. Runners will be grouped and released in waves every half hour from 8 am to 10 pm. All Saturday there will be plenty of family friendly entertainment including food, live music and fireworks afterwards. Registration is $50.

For more information, visit either the RacingHumans.com or FallenPatriotFund.org website, or email info@racinghumans.com. To make a donation to the Fallen Patriot Fund, visit FallenPatriotFund.org.
