Candy Silverman, MuckFest MS LA Mucker
We’re excited to sit down with Candy Silverman from MuckFest® MS Los Angeles team AIS Mind Over Mudder.
Q: How did you first get involved with MuckFest MS?
A: I first became involved with MuckFest MS last year. My Mom has multiple sclerosis, so this is a cause very near and dear to my heart. I have done several Walk MS events in the past. However, when I saw that MuckFest MS was coming to Los Angeles, I knew it would be a really fun event, and I wanted to get my company involved. It’s a wonderful way to raise awareness for this great cause and have some fun with co-workers!
Q: What does MuckFest MS and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society mean to you?
Q: What tip do you have for a first-time Mucker?
A: Most importantly – Don’t be afraid. I am not in shape and was extremely intimidated by the obstacles at first. It truly isn’t difficult though! If you are like me and not ready to run the obstacles, take your time and just have fun out there.
Q: Tell us about your team!
A: This is the second year for AIS Mind Over Mudder. We are a team made up of co-workers, family and friends. Some of whom have MS or have family members with MS. All of us support this wonderful cause to find a cure.
Q: What was your favorite moment at MuckFest MS Los Angeles 2014?
A: The starting line! The mud and laughter were flying before we even started.
Q: If you could share one message with all Muckers, what would it be?
A: Get ready to get muddy! Make sure that you are telling all your friends and family what you are doing – even ask them to join you. Don’t be afraid to email everyone you know asking for donations. I know that not everyone is comfortable asking for donations, but you never know who has been affected by MS in some way or another. You’ll be surprised at the amount of money you can raise just by asking.
We’ll see you and our other Los Angeles Muckers at MuckFest MS LA on October 24th!
