Harbor House Domestic Abuse Program’s Final Warrior Princess Mud Run Set for August 19

Since 2012, the fundraising event of the year has engaged thousands of participants and raised over $500,000 in support of domestic abuse survivors.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 15th, 2017

New London, WI – Harbor House Domestic Abuse Program’s 6th and final Warrior Princess Mud Run is set for Saturday, August 19 at Mosquito Hill Nature Center in New London. Now in its sixth and final year, it is Harbor House’s largest fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the event support the agency’s work to end domestic abuse; including their Prevention Education program that reached over 12,000 students in grades K – 12 in 2016.

Beyond its fun obstacles, the Warrior Princess Mud Run empowers victims of domestic abuse, allows affected families to heal, and provides an outlet for people to get involved with the issue of domestic abuse in their community.  “The Warrior Princess Mud Run is a celebration of all that we can overcome when we work together and support each other through difficult times,” said Beth Schnorr, Harbor House’s Executive Director.  “It’s so representative of what we see happen in the lives of the survivors of domestic abuse and the incredible obstacles they overcome every day. It’s an honor to walk alongside them during that journey and the Warrior Princess Mud Run is a great way to celebrate them and their courage.”

This year marks the final year of the successful fundraising event. “There are big things ahead for Harbor House in 2018 and we need to focus our energy and attention on these new opportunities”, said Development and Marketing Manager, Jenny Krikava, “The success of the Warrior Princess Mud Run exceeded all of our expectations! We are so grateful to the thousands of participants and volunteers who have been the heart and soul of this event over the years. With the funds raised from this year’s event, they will have helped raise over $500,000 to support survivors and help prevent domestic abuse in our community! ”

The Warrior Princess Mud Run is a non-competitive run/walk course, which includes 19 obstacles along the way. There’s still time to be a part of the grand finale. Online registration is available for $85 through Tuesday, August 15 and registration will also be available on site, the day of the event, for $95 (cash or check only).  For more information on how to register or volunteer, please visit www.warriorprincessmudrun.org or www.facebook.com/WarriorPrincessMudRun .
