We need runners and walkers to make this event successful! You can participate in the Run/Walk individually, or with family and friends as a team. Give your team a “Krewe” name, designate team colors or costumes, and just have fun with it! Last year over 350 community members registered for the run/walk in addition to 14 great vendor booths, two radio stations and two local television stations showed up to cover the event.  We are looking forward to an even better event this year!
