The Muddy Puddles Project is a celebration of children and childhood. It was inspired by Ty Campbell, a little boy who absolutely LOVED Peppa Pig and dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles just like her when his cancer was cured. The project embodies the act of kids being kids in honor of those who can’t.
At its core, The Muddy Puddles Project is a vehicle to remind parents to stop sweating the small stuff; but it is also a fundraising platform for the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation in support of childhood cancer research. In 2017, The Muddy Puddles Project became the official charity partner of Peppa Pig, enabling the nonprofit to meet more families, far and wide, and raise awareness for childhood cancer.
Chris & His Momma
Who says muddy puddles are just for kids? Christopher and his mom proved them wrong by taking the plunge and participating in the DIRTY DUNK at Mess Fest. Although we can’t take the plunge together this year, you can sign up to do a virtual dirty dunk here!

Dylan Dryer visited the Mess Fest while producing a “Hope to It” segment on the Muddy Puddles Project. She didn’t hestitate about getting dirty and jumping in the mud, not even for a second. She even let her creativity soar by making muddy handprints and messy art!

Foam Party Fun
The Muddy Puddles Project isn’t just about mud! We celebrate all things messy. That’s what childhood is all about! Our friend in this photo was enjoying the foam party at the end of our annual “SLOPSTACLE” course and her smile was contagious. She didn’t mind a messy face for one second.
Gretchen & Addie
These girls didn’t hesitate when they saw the Mud Kitchen! It was all about making mud pies and getting dirty. Friendships are formed at the Muddy Puddles Mess Fest and Gretchen and Addie continue to meet up at our annual event for a day of messy fun to celebrate of kids being kids in honor of those who can’t.
