There's more bad news due to California's record-breaking drought. A mud run planned in California's Riverside County has been called off.

The Jurassic Classic, as it's called, is an annual fundraiser for youth recreational programs in the San Jacinto Valley. But Friends of Valley-Wide, the non-profit behind it, says it would be irresponsible of them to use the water they'd need to make the mud.

Friends of Valley-Wide's Executive Director Michele Fox spoke with Take Two about the decision to cancel the event.
