We have decided that it would be best to go ahead and cancel the 2020 Merry Go Run. We are disappointed that we will not be able to raise funds for The Carousel Center, but feel this is the right thing to do. We hope that Covid19 will soon be a thing of the past and we look forward to hosting the event in 2021.
Thank you for your understanding.
