All Accounted For: Team CHO Airport Survives the Tough Mudder

Team CHO Airport at the Tough Mudder race

On October 22, 2011 Team CHO Airport joined thousands of challengers looking to earn an orange headband at the sold out Tough Mudder in Wintergreen, VA. Touted as “probably the toughest event on the planet, the 10 mile obstacle course, designed by British Special Forces, tested all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.” With an average completion rate of 78%, the goal is to simply finish.  Overcoming obstacles like death march, boa constrictor and electroshock therapy to name a few, makes most mud runs seem like a walk in the park. According to the Tough Mudder site, this race has ten times more participants than any other mud run and half a million participants globally. To date, Tough Mudder has raised over two million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project.



Team CHO Airport consisted of Public Safety Chief Bryan Jones, Public Safety Corporal Travis Ratcliff, Maintenance Tech Jack Cross and Director of Air Service and Marketing Jason Burch. All survived and after a few days of recovery, most will be back training for next year’s event!

Team CHO gives a day for the United Way

CHO Volunteers Building a deck for United Way Day of Caring

On September 28, 2011 Team CHO headed out early to take on a 2011 United Way Day of Caring Project. Arriving at the Greene County Childcare Center armed with all the tools and manpower to tackle the job, the group of volunteers spent the day tearing up an old wore out deck and replacing it with all new lumber. After a day of hard work - the new deck looked really good! The kids now have a great place to ride their trikes!  Everyone at the center was very thankful that the CHO team had taken on their project and had such an awesome crew!
