Do I have to run the whole 3.1 miles?
Goodness, no! We know not everyone enjoys running. You can run, jog, walk, skip or hop your way to the finish line! It’s not about crossing the finish line first; it’s about being active, having fun and standing up for a cause...or two!

Dress comfortably and in running gear/sneakers! It will be October, so the weather may be a little chilly.
