NOW SUPPORTING THE MUD RUN 5 YEARS RUNNING! (2011-2015)

Please support us as we raise funds to battle Leukemia and get down and dirty in the mud for the 3rd Annual Delaware Mud Run!

The Faries Funeral Home “Super Teams” will be participating in the Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware’s Mud Run Sunday, September 25th, 2011 to help support our friend, Nick Godwin, who will be dressed as The Thing (See picture below). Godwin was diagnosed with leukemia last year. Rob Timblin of Faries Funeral Home will lead the teams as Captain America, with his daughters Camaryn and Carly as the team mascot, and his wife Alison. Alison and Camaryn will be dressed as Supergirl, while Carly will be dressed as Captain Amerigirl! From the picture below, In the back row, from left, are Rich Dowell as Thor, Bob Caguin as Superman, Rich Callahan as The Hulk, and Andy Slavin as Spiderman. Front row is Alison Timblin as Supergirl, Carly Timblin, also as Supergirl (though will be dressed as Captain Amerigirl on Sunday), Rob Timblin as Captain America, and our hero Nick Godwin as The Thing. Not pictured are team members John Trabaudo, Laurie Deisem, Sonya Arrowwood, Dave Elwood, Pete Golba, and team mascot, Camaryn Timblin.

We are ready to get dirty for a good cause at the 3rd annual Delaware Mud Run on Sunday at the Frightland grounds on Route 13 between Odessa and the St. Georges Bridge.

The 5K (3.1 mile) race with plenty of muddy obstacles benefits the Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware. Spectators are welcome. Opening ceremonies start at 9:30 a.m., with the run to follow.

Our teams include three “Superhero” teams sponsored by the Funeral Home.

Rob Timblin from Faries Funeral Home convinced a group of friends to dress up as their favorite superhero for the event. Truth be told, Rob actually chose everyones hero alter-ego for them based on physical, mental, and lifestyle and career traits! But everyone played along well and agreed to go for it!  Many of the Mud Run teams dress in costume and there are prizes for the best costume, along with highest fundraising team, and fastest times.

“I had so much fun last year that I decided to ask a few of my friends to try it out,” said Timblin. “The only condition was that everyone dress in full costume as various superheroes. I’m a fan of old comic books, especially Captain America.”

Faries Funeral Home has donated $750 to sponsor the three teams.

At the Mud Run, Timblin will indeed be dressed as Captain America, along with his wife Alison as Supergirl, Rich Dowell of Clayton as Thor, John Trabaudo of Smyrna as Iron Man, Andy Slavin of Smyrna as Spiderman, Laurie Deisem of Smyrna as Wonder Woman, Bob Caguin of Middletown as Superman, Sonya Arrowwood of Port Penn as the Black Widow, Rich Callahan of Dover as The Hulk, Dave Elwood of Dover as The Punisher, and Pete Golba of Salisbury, MD as Batman.

Running for a friend with leukemia

The Faries Funeral Home Super Teams are also rallying around a friend who has leukemia, Nick Godwin.

“We are all running for him,” said Timblin.

Godwin, who is now out of the hospital after chemotherapy, is planning to participate in the Mud Run as The Thing on one of the Super Teams.

“It’s a great cause,” said Godwin. “It really shows that people out there care. It’s amazing how many people come out for this.”

As far as his teammates, Godwin said, “It’s a great thing to have friends like this.”

He also thanked the event founders, the Ferrara family, for all they’ve done raise money for leukemia research.

Godwin was diagnosed with leukemia, a cancer of the blood, in July 2010. He spent more than a month in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy and continues to take medication.

“I tell everyone, ‘I feel fine,’ but there’s a lot of fatigue. Your muscles ache,” he said. “But I’m lucky. It’s the people in the hospital that are going through the worst of it. I say prayers for them.”
