OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE BACK
Runners/walkers know how important it is to have good athletic shoes so we are asking for your help. New this year we will be holding a shoe drive to benefit the Oregon Elementary PE kids. You would be surprised at the number of kids that don't have good athletic shoes to keep at school for PE classes. We are asking for new to gently used athletic shoes in youth sizes 12-5. A donation box will be available at early packet pickup and at the packet pickup on race day.
