Less than 3 weeks!

We have less than 3 weeks to go until race day!  We have picked up several business sponsors this month!  Check out our sponsor page or the links to these awesome businesses on the right hand side.
As always we are still looking for racers and walkers!  The course is a loop starting at the Bluffton H.S. stadium. Runners will then head down Stogdill Rd to the Greenway before heading up Wayne St and back around to the stadium. There will be a water station at the halfway point in the race as well as water and refreshments afterwards.

Invite your friends and join us for a fun morning!  We look forward to seeing you there and thanks for helping us with such a great cause!
