CELEBRATING KIDS BEING KIDS
in Honor of Those Who Can’t
April 1 is National Jump in Muddy Puddles Day and your family can help celebrate with a "Welly Walk!"
It’s time to break in those wellies! Rain or shine, join Peppa Pig in supporting the Muddy Puddles Project for pediatric cancer research by hosting a Welly Walk fundraiser.
A welly walk is as simple as it sounds. Taking a stroll outside in your favorite wellies (rain boots). Enjoy the outdoors in a fun way that embraces a beloved childhood activity, while honoring all of the children who are currently battling cancer and unable to enjoy such simple pleasures.
About the Muddy Puddles Project:
The Muddy Puddles Project is a fundraising platform for the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation, a certified 501(c)(3) that funds pediatric cancer research. The project was inspired by Ty, a little boy who loved Peppa Pig and dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles when his cancer was cured.
After Ty lost his battle with cancer, his parents committed to finding ways to fund innovative research geared toward safer, more effective treatment of various childhood cancers. The Muddy Puddles Project has grown by leaps and bounds with families all across the country joining the mission. To bring more awareness to the cause, kids and families as well as schools nationwide host their own “Welly Walks” and take part in the charity’s Mess Fest events to honor all children who are battling cancer and unable to enjoy such simple pleasures of childhood.
The Muddy Puddles Project is a celebration of children and childhood. It is a shift toward letting go of the everyday stress of being a grownup, and finding the fun in all things messy.
