Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and get a better understanding of the cause for which we are competing.

The Tough Mudder competition is unlike any other competition out there. If you visit the website (, you are greeted by the unsettling description, “it’s Ironman meets Burning Man”. This is not a race but a team oriented competition designed by ex British Special Forces to test toughness, fitness, strength, stamina and, above all, mental grit. The ideal is to instill the values of teamwork, camaraderie, commitment and most of all compassion.

Although, the idea to participate in this competition is not stemmed by the overall competition, but the cause for which it serves; the Wounded Warriors Project. The Wounded Warrior Project ( is designed to aid in the needs of the men and women who have faithfully served our country and have been wounded on the battlefield. We, as a team, have the utmost respect for those individuals who place their lives on the line for our freedom.

Our team consists of a variety of individuals, including those that are serving or have served, who are committed to fighting for what we deem to be an honorable cause. Our team name, Team Azariah, stems from the greek name meaning "helped by God." It is by the grace of God that we have the freedoms we do and the individuals who sacrifice themselves for the sake of others.

We are asking, in the true spirit of the Tough Mudder mentality of no man left behind, to aid in our cause. We couldn’t help but think of our wounded soldiers that have, do, and will sacrifice so much for all of us. We ask for your prayers and support to honor and empower our nation’s wounded soldiers by raising money for our team and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Again, thank you for your consideration and we appreciate all that you are able to contribute; every cent counts.

As an added incentive, for every $10 that you donate, you will be entered in a silent auction held the first week in May for a chance to win one of many autographed items from active athletes in the NFL, NBA, MLB, UFC and LFL.

Feel free to forward this to anyone you feel would help contribute to our cause. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

Many thanks,

Team Azariah:

Brien Sonzogni, David Martin, Sean Ennist, Tom Watson, Mark Karlstrum, Andrew Martin, Sam Martin, Ben Bryan, Justin Farrell, Brian Fortman and Dan Toro
