JCB MUD RUN JCB will host the 2nd annual JCB Mud Run for charity on June 15th, at JCB's North American Headquarters in Savannah, Ga. Proceeds from the 4.3-mile Mud Run race will benefit The Lady Bamford Center. Operated by Wesley Community Centers of Savannah, and located at 1410 Richard Street in West Savannah, the Lady Bamford Center provides education and social skills development to children from six weeks to five years of age. The Center offers priority admission to children from homeless and low-income families, as well as children with physical, mental or emotional challenges. Its interactive curriculum prepares young children for kindergarten and elementary school and helps them compete with other children academically. The Lady Bamford Center was accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Fewer than eight percent of all early childhood centers in the United States receive this prestigious honor. The more-than-1,000-acre JCB campus serves as the perfect backdrop for the 3,000 runners who are expected to compete in the challenging race, which includes over 20 obstacles. In addition, JCB's own product range of more than 140 models of the toughest construction equipment in the world is being put to the test building obstacles such as "Bamford Bluff," "Dieselmax Drop" and "Powerboom Peaks."
