Heather Perkins, Event Chairperson, said “We are very thankful for the amazing amount of support we have received from not only sponsors for the event but also people participating and volunteering. We already have over 75 people registered and are hoping even more will join us.

If you finish in a designated prize slot, you win. There will be cash prizes for the overall winner, 2nd and 3rd places and all event participants will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing for $100.”
