-A +A


The second annual Mud Run on June 22 will raise funds to help educate and provide resources for suicide prevention.

“Every fifteen minutes, someone commits suicide. Within a three-month period, the Lincoln community suffered the loss of three young men. There’s been a rippling effect ever since,” according to the Mud Run website.  

The event is hosted by the Whalen, Waterlyn and Aguilar families; presented by Gold’s Gym and sponsored by the Lincoln Rotary Foundation.
