The Tug-of-War event at the Carbon County Fair on Saturday morning left a number of people muddy. But it was all in the name of fun and for a good cause.

Eleven teams participated and three teams comprised of children took part in the event that saw teams fighting to not fall in a huge mud pit held at the Finish Pit at the Motocross Track. Teams from the Carbon County Road shop finished first and second at the event.

The proceeds and donations collected at the Tug-of-War, which was over $300, will be presented to the family of Oakley Giraud, who is battling a rare retinal disease. According to Ryan Peterson, a member with the Mud Committee, the Mud Committee will match the entire proceeds of the event for the Giraud family. That money will go towards the non-profit Oakley Giraud Foundation, according to Oakley's mother, Alysa Giraud.
