The little activist inside all of us really wants to stop going to city council meetings and legislative subcommittees and just go play in the mud. This weekend, you can do just that and help fight multiple sclerosis by taking part in the inaugural MS Mud Run. Also this weekend, you can catch some free music and help out the Utah Food Bank, which is struggling through one of its most severe donations shortages. Later, check out an open-house meeting on the North Temple renovation project and add your voice to the discussion.

Mud Run MS
Saturday, Aug. 13

In a dirty 10K designed by the Marines, you can slip, slide and stumble your way through the muck and numerous obstacles to beat the Mud Run MS. The event will set you back $50 registration and a $100 fundraising minimum, but it will give you the opportunity to indulge your inner child’s puddle-stomping instincts, while also fighting a chronic disease that affects 2.1 million people worldwide. Miller Motorsports Park, 2901 N. Sheep Lane, Tooele, 801-424-0113, Aug. 13, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.,

The Can Jam
Saturday, Aug. 13

Summer months are always a low point for canned-food donations, and with federal food donations tapped out, the Utah Food Bank is looking for local music fans to bring the love to their Summer Can Jam. Local bands such as The Tangelos and Danger Button will perform at this free show, where donations are warmly appreciated. Community Park, 400 W. 1300 North, Centerville, 801-978-2452, Aug. 13, 4-9 p.m.,

North Temple Open House
Tuesday, Aug. 16

Since spring 2010, Salt Lake City has been renovating the North Temple corridor, and the city fathers need your help figuring out how to best give the beleaguered street an extreme makeover. Come to this open house and offer your thoughts on how to beautify the area in a way that works best for local residents and businesses. Day-Riverside Library, 1575 W. 1000 North, Salt Lake City, 801-535-7240, Aug. 16, 7-8:30 p.m.,
