ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Hundreds of people are expected to get down and dirty this weekend for the Daniel Barden Highland Mudfest at MKJ Farms in Deansboro.

Daniel Barden was one of the first grade students killed during the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. All proceeds from the run will go to the Barden family to help them get back on their feet.

Organizers say so far, the response has been overwhelming. More than 850 people have already registered. Many are traveling over from Connecticut.

"There's over 100 people that are registered from Newtown coming up and we expect to have several hundred people come from Connecticut, either volunteers or they're going to be running the race or just spectating," said race director Daniel Williams.

The run will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Along with the 5K mud run, there will also be field contests and a party afterwards with food and four live bands.
