Woodard Donates $20,580 to BackStoppers & Responder Rescue


Through the support of our staff, first responders, local vendors, and the community we were able to raise $20,580 from our Chief Silvernail Crusher Race! 100% of the proceeds from the race were donated to The BackStoppers and Responder Rescue.

The Chief Silvernail Crusher Race was a great event that the whole family can participate in! The race offered a variety of different levels of mud, obstacles and physical challenges. The beginner level was a 5k with 20+ obstacles perfect for any and all fitness levels. The intermediate level was a 10k with 30+ obstacles and will challenge any fitness enthusiast. The expert level was only for professionals. Through ticket sales and donations, Woodard raised $20,580 to donate to The BackStoppers and Responder Rescue.

If you didn’t want to run in the event, we had other family-friendly events to participate in. For example, there was a mud pit, Fenton’s fire safety trailer, a DJ, Code 3 Response, and more!

A HUGE thank you to all of our sponsors who helped make this event possible – The United States Air Force Special Operations, Brookdale Farms, Jon-Don, The Noce Agency Farmers Insurance, Hughes Customat Inc., Ferguson Roofing, Beck Disposal, CRDN – Textile & Electronics Restoration, CenterPointe Hospital, Fountain City Grille, Riverview Fire Protection District, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Goldkamp Heating & Cooling, Universal Creative Concepts, Dog House, Rumors On Ice, McFarland Travel, Ricks Gumball Galore, Gerding Enterprises and Tammy Robinson. Had it not been for our generous sponsors, Woodard wouldn’t have been able to donate $20,580 to BackStopper and Responder Recuse!
