Description

On December 10, a group of people cycling through Nevada were hit from behind by a box truck. Tragically, five of those individuals were killed, and several others injured. As a community, we are deeply saddened and devastated by this tragedy. While our hearts and prayers are with the families and friends of all involved, we want to find a way to pay tribute to, and support, the victims and their families. 

We will not forget them. 

In the coming week, take time to run or walk a 5K in honor of the victims. Register below and donate whatever you are able to give by visiting this website. All proceeds will go to the five victims' families.

Join us in dedicating 1 kilometer for each of the five individuals.
