For Those Who Would announce today the four finalists for the 2018 For Those Who Would OCR Humanitarian Award. The four finalists announced today are Brian Nichol, Jeff Murphy, Bill Slaughter, and Lindsay Webster. Community voting is open today through July 5, 2018.
The purpose of the OCR Humanitarian Award co-sponsored by Mud Run Guide and North American Obstacle Course Racing 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 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships selected four 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 tiebreaker. Please read about the wonderful things these finalists are doing and cast your vote below.
Voting will close on Thursday, July 5 at 6:00 EST. The winner will be announced the week of July 9. The winner and finalists will be honored during a dinner at the 2018 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships.
