The last two years I have had the great opportunity to help crew for some great Ultra runners at the World Famous Badwater Ultramarathon. So I was super excited to learn that a newly great friend, Catra Corbett aka Dirt Diva was going to be entering the 2011 Badwater event and that she was going to be raising money for Chance to Compete kids. One of her sponsors was going to supply the entry registration fee and a couple of others were helping with other financial costs. Badwater not only requires great physical and mental toughness but also a great financial commitment and a great desire to raise money for some charitable organization, which is actually a Requirement to compete in Badwater.
Catra was super excited to continue raising money for Chance 2 Compete Kids but the day before the registration for Badwater opened this week Catra was informed that the lead sponsor would not be able to fully help as initially planned. Catra was pretty bummed and knew that Badwater 2011 would have to wait. BUT this is where her friends, fans and loved ones have all stepped up and have set up a donation page to help her raise money for Chance 2 Compete kids and help get her to the start line of Badwater 2011.
If you are interested in more of the story check out the link below and if feel inclined to help please donate any amount you desire. I will tell you that all amounts help and she will make you all proud! Catra is truly a person with a loving heart.
