A Muddy Mess!

Been feeling chilly this winter? Well, imagine putting on a wetsuit, swimming across an icy river and then crawling through a huge heap of mud!

That’s exactly what 250 people did in Essex in England, for the annual Maldon Mud Race.

The tradition began 30 years ago after a pub manager offered a free drink to anyone who could cross the muddy water and get back again.

Today, people do it for charity – and in all sorts of wacky outfits!

After trudging through the mud, the crawlers raised 20,000 pounds for charity this year.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
