More than 20 DynCorp International team members in Fort Worth, Texas, participated in the Dallas Tough Mudder October 26, in Dallas, Texas, to help benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Proceeds from the event directly benefit the Wounded Warrior Project’s programs including combat stress recovery programs, adaptive sports programs, benefits counseling and employment services. Tough Mudder events have helped raise more than $6 million for the Wounded Warrior Project.
Team “DI Stars” completed a more than 10-mile obstacle course complete with mud, fire, ice-water and electric shocks, all designed to test strength, stamina, mental grit and camaraderie.
“We are grateful and thankful for DynCorp International’s support of our team in the Tough Mudder. Going through mud, crawling through barbed wire, and jumping in ice cold water was well worth being able to honor and support our nation’s wounded warriors,” said Sarah Turner, DynCorp International operations supervisor. “The DI Stars team was proud to help raise hundreds of dollars to contribute towards the $6 million that has been donated to the Wounded Warrior Project to date.”
