Race and Fundraise

You can make an impact! When you register to participate, each runner will automatically have their own fundraiser page. Share the link to your page with friends and family and get sponsored to run. If every participant raised just $100 we would be able to increase our annual contribution by 30% to EUSD. Each participant who raises at least $100 will be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card.
