DECA fights uphill battle with mud run

Elk River High School’s DECA program sponsored its first Race for a Muscle, a mud run fund raiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Participants got down and dirty on the ERX Motorsports track at the Oct. 22 event and raised money for a good cause at the same time.

Addie Szews and Halley Brondum (the two in the middle of this photo) were among those to participate in the Mud Run to raise money for the Muscular Distrophy Association.


Emily Lewis made the climb as part of this past week’s fund raiser for MDA, which was sponsored by Elk River High School’s DECA program.
