And that’s just the beginning - did you know the NVBCC is working with area health departments to assist business owners in navigating through COVID’s workforce impacts, assisting safe return to work, providing transportation and even help with starting over? We are! Let’s kick it up a notch: make a goal to walk an average of 4.5 miles a day as we begin the COVID come back.
Are you ready to lace up the sneakers and begin?
Click Here to Register - start warming up today! As of August 1st we want you to *literally* hit the ground running - or walking - or rolling! We encourage you to take pictures of your route and upload them to the race website. We will share with the community at large the impact YOU are making to move the economy One Step Forward!
