We are hoping for a Mile Sponsor for each mile. For $100 raised by an individual, team or business, we will assign a specific mile. The assignments will be random. A separate sponsor sign will be created and displayed on the track. For example, "Mile 14 Sponsor - The Jones Family"
Smaller donations are also very much appreciated! Every dollar counts.
