We need help finding sponsors, attending packet pick-up the night before, and race day support during the 5k for traffic control, registration, and general support during the afternoon.  If you could offer even a few hours of commitment to supporting our cause, our race can continue to be a great opportunity for the families of the MOV.  Interested?  Send us a message!
