Mud, Sweat and Cheers set for Saturday in Ithaca

It’s that time of year again. Mud, Sweat and Cheers 7 is one of Ithaca’s most revered events, held in honor of one of Ithaca’s most beloved young men, and it will take place next Saturday, April 27.

Terry Ciaschi, the facilities director at Island Health & Fitness, has been the driving force behind the event since its inception, and the cause is dear to his heart. Not only is he lifelong friends with Carol and Tim Bordoni, whose son, Chris, passed on in 2012 while serving as a U.S. Marine, Terry’s son Dominic is a Marine as well.

The Bordoni 5K and 5K Extreme Fitness Challenge will start off at Island H&F at 8:30 a.m., and it will involve a seven-station obstacle course.
