A: We are so glad you asked! Other than the feeling of pride knowing you helping to support our students, teachers, and families in Revere, there will be prizes for our top fundraisers - stay tuned for more info!
Q: Are you collecting donations based on how many miles my child will run?
A: No. Money collected from the student’s donation forms is not contingent upon them participating on race day.
Q: How do I get my race shirt(s)?
A: We will communicate a shirt pick up time before our November 7th event, and we will also have the shirts at the event to pick up.
