Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children 5 to 14 years old, and the Tough Like Jack Foundation, named for Jack Culverhouse, who succumbed to a brain tumor in 2015, will hold the Tough Like Jack one-mile muddy obstacle course on July 23, at a farm in Princeton. Gates open at 9 a.m. and the race starts at 10 a.m. for kids 4 to 17 years old.
Contestants can run, crawl, slide and otherwise navigate 12 obstacles and enjoy other events. Each participant will receive a T-shirt, medal and meal voucher. There will also be a DJ, face painting, hairspray coloring, a bounce house, mud trucks on display and obstacles to sample. Damon Cole, a Ft. Worth police officer who spends his off time driving around the country visiting sick children with cancer and other childhood diseases, will be a featured guest.
Registration is $25 before Jul. 1 and $30 after. Location; 7955 CR 831, Princeton (15 minutes east of McKinney). For more information or to register, visit ToughLikeJack.com.
