EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2016
My name is Cassarah Chajkowski. As of late I've been struggling with many things in my life and even the point of doubtingmy self worth. It wasn't until recently that life has opened up my eyes and realized that its not so bad. Only I can really make the difference I want to see. Well, that's where Tough Mudder came in.
It came to a point where, in a way, I need to be a little selfish and need to make myself happy, but I wasn't sure what that meant to me. So, as my journey started, I took the moment and thought really hard about what I needed to. I told myself, "I need to figure out what I need to be me again". I decided to challenge myself on a physical and on a mental level; thus I came across Tough Mudder. I knew I needed the challenge and I knew that I needed to provide myself with an opportunity to be better.
With this in mind, I knew it was my destiny to accomplish such a feet, but it felt rather selfabsorbed. Like there wasn't a true meaning behind what I wanted to accomplish except for my own selfish needs and it really bothered me. That's when I came across the chairty page on Tough Mudder and I knew this was it.
I chose to raise money for feed the children because I remember on many occasions being at home and not eating. My parents are great people and I know they struggled for many years to provide sustenance for my family. I remember the pain in my stomach at those times and how I didn't want to say a word to my parents because I knew they worked hard for what we did have (even though there were several occasions where I couldn't help but say something to them). It eventually got better, but it wasn't just coincidence. We had help.
This is what I'm asking from you. Please, your support will help give several meals to kids who need them the most and it will also help me to strive for my selfworth. I do this not because I expect a reward, but because its right.
