COURSE: It is out and back on a picturesque, landscaped running path.  You will be sharing the route with cyclists, other runners, and dog walkers.  If pushing a stroller, stay to the right.  And know, that you are choosing to run on an open public path, not a closed course. We are providing the motivational BLING for you to celebrate being healthy and hopping into the Spring Easter spirit.  Special appearance of the Easter bunny for great selfie photos!!  Run fast, or enjoy this event as a friend or family affair. 

PROCEEDS from this event to benefit the formation of Ware in the World Foundation. Proceeds  will be going to Miss Pam's Ranch, a working ranch that teaches troubled youth to ride, do chores, build esteem,  and set goals. Miss Pam RUNS her ranch from a wheelchair. We are still trying to raise funds to repair the travel chair we gifted her last year.   Proceeds will  also, NOW , DUE TO COVIT-19,  assist in paying for feed for the ranch animals.
