Why More Than Just  A Race

This is a community event to share Jesse’s spirit and help our neighbors in need. Here are some of the ways you can be more than just a runner:

·         Neighbor for Neighbor food pantry- bring a non perishable food item

·         Soles 4 Souls- bring your used running shoes, or any used, but serviceable shoes, of any size. They will shared with those in need locally, in the U.S. and  globally. (Soles 4 Souls Website)

·         Clean Water- learn about global water needs around the world. 80% of all illnesses are caused by poor water, and kills more than all forms of violence.  $20 provides water for 20 years for another human being.  (Charity Water Website)

·         Organ Donation- Jesse’s donation impacted over 15 people. Say yes to donation and save a life. GOT YOUR DOT?  You can sign up to be a donor on race day.  (Organ Donor Website)

 

      There will be informational booths on race day describing these charitable causes. You can also bring donations to the packet pick up on Friday or through 10 am on race day.


Please browse our site for additional information.  If you can't find what you need, contact us with your questions.

  We are happy to help!
