For Those Who Would OCR Humanitarian award announced today the four finalists for the 2017 recipient. The four finalists announced today are Melissa Dugan, Matty Gregg, Joey McGlamory, and Paul TenHaken. Community voting is open today through September 17, 2017.
The purpose of the OCR Humanitarian Award co-sponsored by Mud Run Guide and OCR World Championships is to recognize an individual within the obstacle racing community who consistently exhibits humanitarian traits off the course. This includes:
1. Giving of him/herself without expectation of compensation
2. Embraces common moral decencies such as altruism, integrity, responsibility, and compassion
3. Improves the lives of others through selfless, courageous, and compassionate acts
There was an extremely strong field of nominations this year and the committee composed of representatives from For Those Who Would, Mud Run Guide, and OCR World Championship selected 4 finalists. For Those Who Would and the rest of the nomination committee wants to shine a positive light on these individuals’ selfless acts in order to inspire others, we give the OCR community a vote in the final selection. In essence, in the event of a tie in the selection committee’s final vote, the OCR community vote serves as the tie breaker. Please read about the wonderful things these finalists are doing and cast your vote below.
Voting will close on Sunday, September 17 at 6:00 EST. The winner will be announced the week of September 18. The winner and finalists will be honored during a dinner at the 2017 OCR World Championships at the Blue Mountain Resort in Ontario, Canada.
