Endure the Dirt 2020 Has Been Rescheduled


We have received many calls and inquiries about the status of our event, many of whom expressed concern.   As I am sure you have read in the news, the CDC and many large local organizations are recommending "social distancing" in which large gatherings of people be postponed to reduce the possibility of transmission.


After consulting with health care officials and our colleagues, it has been determined that due to the large number of participants, we have to postpone Endure the Dirt 2020.  Arkansas county is currently unaffected by COVID-19; therefore, we can not risk participants traveling from the affected counties and unknowingly contributing to the spread.


Because we are ultimately concerned about the population we serve, cancer patients and their caregivers, their safety is our top priority.

We are very disappointed and know that you are as well. We ask for your understanding as we continue the work that is enabled by Endure the Dirt and will notify you all when a new time has been scheduled.


We appreciate your support more than you know and ask for your prayers as we continue our very important mission.

Endure The Dirt

Every day cancer patients have to ENDURE the good, the bad, and the ugly of cancer. Cancer affects the patient and their families physically, mentally, and spiritually.

ENDURE THE DIRT lets you feel, just for a few moments, what a cancer patient feels almost every day. Year 2 was awesome with new obstacles that were fun, wet and crazy! In 2019, we had 156 volunteers and 344 participants.
