The race with the funny name is back. Hirschsprung Disease affects children that lack the nerve cells necessary to help propel waste through their bodies. This event will raise awareness of this condition and provide funds to support research grants and help families cope with this rare disease. Proceeds will benefit REACH, a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of children and families living with Hirschsprung Disease.

The course is run through scenic Newport News Park. It is fast and nearly flat. Runners and walkers welcome.
