The purpose of the event is to draw people from all walks of life to make a difference in the life of another person, while having a blast along the way. All participants will not only run a fun and challenging race, but will also have the privilege to give to several charities:
They are the beautiful people of the indigenous region of Guatemala. They are our fellow human beings filled with dreams for their lives and hopes for their children. But they are lacking basic resources like beds to get a good night’s rest, stoves on which to cook, and clean water. Proceeds from our race will go towards purchasing these types of items which will help them tremendously in their daily lives. We are also taking up collections like stuffed animals and soccer supplies.
