General Race Info

A new feature to the 2016 Festival is the partnership with Great Day Connections (GDC) Community 5K Walk/Run. Great Day Connections Community 5K is a fundraiser to benefit children who are Deaf, hard of hearing or non-verbal through a scholarship that will provide tutoring in reading. GDC will also donate books for children ages birth-3, entering the foster-care system. Non-profit organizations, clubs, schools, and other supporters of children and families are welcomed to join this amazing, fun event!
