2020 Prowl for a Purpose has been CANCELLED!!!

Given the current situation, the Springfield NHS has made the decision to cancel Prowl for a Purpose this year.  We do not know how long the ban on gatherings will last, and with the schools all canceling, we have no way to communicate or receive donations from the students.  We do not want to send students out in the community to get donations during a time when social isolation is being promoted.  We also do not want to ask local businesses for money when they may not be making much.  We are viewing this as a one year hiatus and plan to reinstate the race next year.
