MUMS, dads and kids are getting muddy to help out women and children in need across the region.

The inaugural ‘healthy mummy fundraiser’ will be collecting money for the Tamworth Family Support Service and their women’s and children’s refuges with a mud run obstacle course at Lake Keepit on Saturday.

Event organiser Lorna Williams encouraged more people to get behind the muddy fundraiser.

“I haven’t used the [Tamworth Family Support] service, but it is something close to my heart,” Ms Williams said.

The event is coordinated by the ‘healthy mummy’ group, which is aimed at getting mothers more proactive with their physical health.

You might have recognised the group at recent colour runs and the Rebound race in their signature pink tutus.

But don’t let the dress fool you, the healthy mummys are fighting fit, with more than 1100 members locally.

“Just because you’re a mum doesn’t mean you have to put yourself second,” Ms Williams said.

The Tamworth Family Support Service fundraising mud run is open to any keen entrants at any level of fitness.

Entry for adults is $45, kids aged 13 to 17 can have a go for $35, while youngsters from seven to 12 can take the run for $30.

Family tickets are also available for $130, which pays for two adults and two children.

Anyone interested can register by emailing lorna@the healthymummy.com or at Lake Keepit on the day before 9am.
