All proceeds from these events will go directly to RAMP. Register online by August 15th to be guaranteed an event t-shirt!

We plan to put on an awesome event for our runners, walkers, and wheelers while working to raise funds to support RAMP, a local non-profit organization that provides services and advocacy that assist individuals with disabilities to live as independently as possible. You may choose the fundraising option instead of or in addition to paying the participation fee. We do require that you fundraise the fee prior to the event.
