Description: A Large Fundraising Event for Childhood Cancer in Honor of SuperTy Campbell.
Join this celebration of childhood, forget about the stresses of everyday life, and take some time out to let loose and get messy. The first annual Muddy Puddles "Mess Fest" honors Ty Louis Campbell, a young boy who lost his battle with brain cancer last year at the age of five. In remembrance of Ty, this day is devoted to letting out your inner child as you laugh, play, and get messy! The event will include carnival games, zip lines, splatter paint, pie tosses, hay rides, musical performances, food fights, muddy puddle jumping, and much more.
The Muddy Puddles "Mess Fest" is a family fun event, but more important, it is a fundraiser for childhood cancer research through the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation. Throughout Ty's cancer treatment, he yearned for the day when he would be well enough to jump in muddy puddles again, a simple pleasure that his disease took away from him. In Ty's honor children are invited to enjoy the simple pleasures of being a kid, for all those who are no longer able to.
