DEVENS — Mud is the great equalizer.
Last weekend, some 5,000 mud-caked people helped raise money for multiple sclerosis research. The organization’s fundraising goal is $730,000 and it has so far raised more than $600,000.
Some competitors rose to new heights.
Heather Ward of Ayer, who has battled MS since 2000, even surprised herself.
She grabbed the rings and conquered the AbbVie Spinner, a circular ride dangling over a muddy moat, with a smile plastered on her face.
