This will be one of our biggest fundraisers to date! Please join us on May 25th on Harriet Island for some fun! Here’s a link to registration. If you register before January 31st, you get $5 off your registration.
***Due to the popularity of this event, there will be no same day registration. There are fewer than 50 spots available*** Updated 5/11/13
There is a good spirited competition going on with this fundraiser as well. We’re sharing the proceeds of the race with Gentle Touch Animal Sanctuary. They’re a worthy cause, but we’d still like to have more of our folks signing up for bragging rights. Come on, run or walk with us!
