Enthusiastic competitors braved mud, water and obstacles during a recent Warrior Dash event in Jackson, Mississippi, to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The Warrior Dash is a 5K race in which participants conquer obstacles such as wooden barricades, barbed wire and waist-deep water on their way to the finish line. The competition is produced by Red Frog Events, LLC, which recently made St. Jude its national charity partner. St. Jude also will partner with Red Frog for the Beach Dash, Great Urban Race and its newest endeavor, Firefly Music Festival, planned for July in Dover, Delaware, through the Music Gives to St. Jude Kids program.
