Good, Clean, Healthy Fun

One of the four-person HHSA Behavioral Health Services teams, “Girls Luv Mud,” start out in bright pink shirts: Jennifer Wheeler (in rear), Candace Kienitz and Debra Fitzgerald (middle), and Christine Mabesa (front).For the fourth straight year, the Health and Human Services Agency's Behavioral Health Services staff took on the extreme challenge of the San Diego Mud Run benefit, held in Rancho San Diego on Sunday, March 20.

This year, a few new runners participated in the messy, fun, and difficult 5K race that tested 3,000 runners’ endurance with obstacles including steep slippery hill climbs, tunnel crawls, trail runs, and more than 15 mud pits, from ankle splashers to waist-high.

Most definitely, no one left the course clean. For more information about the race:
