HELP of Door County has been planning and promoting its mud run fundraiser since early spring, but recently received a cease and desist letter.
“We were informed by an attorney in Utah that the name of our mud run was trademarked, therefore we had to remove it from all websites, media, and any promotional materials we have created,” said Ursula Bunnell Timreck, HELP’s Executive Director. “We needed to quickly make a name change and hope that it doesn’t confuse people.”
The committee decided on the name Door’s Dirty 5K mud run. The event will be held May 23, 2015.
“We anticipate this will be our largest fundraiser so it is important that we make sure people know the Door’s Dirty 5K is still the mud run for HELP. This 5K community event is created for youth and adults and we are excited to have this unique activity in Door County.”
The Door’s Dirty 5K is a non-competitive mud run for those ages 13 and older. People are encouraged to participate in a team, but can run individually. HELP of Door County is teaming up with the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department to provide food, onsite EMTs, and the after-run “shower.”
HELP is in need of volunteers for this fundraiser and is hoping people will come forward to support their mission. Participants and volunteers get free food and zip lining at the event. For more information or to volunteer visit doorcountysdirty5K.com, email [email protected] or call 920.743.8785.
