Curt Maples to Run Badwater in Iraq, Help Iraqi Children

Curt Maples, the three time Badwater finisher who received the "Badwater Ambassador Award" at the 2003 race, is currently deployed to Iraq with the US Marine Corps. This July 12-14, he will run 135 miles in Iraq simultaneous to the 2004 Kiehl's Badwater Ultramarathon. As an honorary race entrant, he will wear his customary bib number 13 while doing so. His Marine Corps support crew will be emailing photos to our race headquarters for inclusion in the race webcast.

Curt is asking for support of the local Iraqi school children for this effort: "Really anything people can send will help (but do not send money).  Maybe we can do something to help these kids who have the misfortune to be caught up in all this mess!  Thank you!"

The following items should be sent to Curt at the address below:  School supplies such as spiral-type notebooks, crayons, pencils, coloring books, folders, notebook paper, etc. Soccer balls/Frisbees. Kids' clothing such as t-shirts and socks. Please take the time to help Curt's cause. It's one we can all embrace and it won't take too much time to run to the store and then to the post office with a box of goodies for children who want, and deserve, a bright futureFor more about Curt and all of his correspondence, click here.
