Where do the funds go?

Panther Spirit Race is the the primary fundraiser for the DeWitt Cheer Program.  We think it's a healthier and more fun option than selling pizza's, candy, or coupon books.

What about age groups and prizes?

Age groups start at under 11, 11-14, 15-19, and so on to 65-69, and 70+.  Panther Spirit medals will be awarded to the top three in each category.  Awards also for overall male & female, and male & female Masters.

Will there be any activities during the 5K for those not running the race?

Age-appropriate activities and supervision will be provided for kids by the DeWitt Cheerleaders.  There will also be music and a Master of Ceremonies. 

Will there be enough time to get to the Parade?

The Panther Spirit Race is organized so parade participants and spectators can arrive at the parade in plenty of time.  Note:  DeWitt Cheerleaders themselves walk in the parade.
