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:

Food Pantry Neighbor for Neighbor Food Pantry – bring a non-perishable food item.
Soles for Souls Soles 4 Souls – bring your used running shoes or any used, but serviceable shoes of any size. They will be shared with those in need locally, nationally, and globally.
Giving Hope - full image Clean Water – learn about global water needs. 80% of all illnesses are caused by poor water. $20 provides water for 20 years for an adult or child.
DOT Organ Donation – Jesse’s donation impacted over 15 people. Say “Yes” to organ donation and save a life. GOT YOUR DOT? You can sign up on race day to be an organ donor.
