To that end, event organizers Chris Witt and Bill Borges appeared before the Riverhead town board on Tuesday to present two checks, one for $3000 to the town, and the other, for $1000, to be given to the Riverhead Police Athletic League.
The event, which brought approximately 1000 participants to EPCAL, features obstacle courses, mud, climbing, and fun for all ages.
No injuries were reported, the men said.
"These are local guys," Councilman George Gabrielsen said. "With young guys like this, Riverhead does have a bright future."
The men thanked the board "for believing in us."
In addition, the organizers also donated to other local charities, including the Timothy Hill Children's Ranch, the North Fork Breast Health Coalition, the Manorville and Riverhead Fire Departments, and others.
In total, they donated approximately $13,000 to local charities.
Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter said he'd like to see the money put into the town's recreation budget.
Gabrielsen agreed, suggesting it might be used for irrigation at EPCAL.
