So much filthy fun, you just might have to ask someone to 'Kiss Me Dirty' when you finish!

Kiss Me…I’m Dirty! Tucson women of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels will test their ‘luck’ on St. Patty’s Day (Sunday, March 17th) as they hop, skip, jump, slip and scramble their way through a field of obstacles and mud run at the 2nd annual Kiss Me Dirty Arizona event at the Pima Co. Fairgrounds in Tucson. Kiss Me Dirty offers a fun, safe and rewarding fitness challenge as it encourages women to “come as you are,” free from the pressure to look or act in a particular way.

Kiss Me Dirty empowers women in two important ways: 1) It encourages women to get off the couch and have fun with fitness, and 2) it donates a portion of event proceeds directly to gynecological cancer research and treatment support. As it did last year, the 2013 Kiss Me Dirty Tucson event will benefit the University of Arizona Cancer Center, a leader in research on ovarian cancer.

“Kiss Me Dirty chooses to partner with local cancer research facilities in each of the communities we produce events,” says Kiss Me Dirty founding partner, Charity Vernon. “We know participants appreciate that their monies are staying local and furthering treatment options and research capabilities in their own communities. Kiss Me Dirty also encourages participants to hold their own gynecological cancer research fundraisers in conjunction with an event. Participants are rewarded with entry fee waivers for future Kiss Me Dirty obstacle course events when they meet specific fundraising milestones. “We anticipate we will be able to donate over $15,000 to The University of Arizona Cancer Center for gynecological cancer research, from this year’s Kiss Me Dirty Tucson event,” notes Vernon.

Started in 2010, Kiss Me Dirty mud races have been widely embraced as a way for “today’s stressed-out woman to lose herself, along with her inhibitions, in a sea of mud, laughter, and girl power.” From the ‘Dirty Director’, who acts as Master of Ceremonies and keeps the atmosphere pumping, to the custom pageant style sashes that are given to cancer survivors, Kiss Me Dirty strives to provide the right combination of energy, attitude, and value in a setting that gives every participant the freedom to express her individuality and her wild side. After all, women aren’t ‘one size fits all,’ so why should Kiss Me Dirty?”
