Everyone can join in. You can run, walk, stroll or roll your way to the festive finish line. Avid runner? Cross the line first (in your ability/age bracket) and you'll win a prize. Got an old prom gown or tux? Sport it and you could be crowned Run King or Queen!

The funds raised will help local high school students who are served through the Department of Human Services go to their prom in style. The funds will help to buy jewelry, plus-sized gowns, tuxedo-rental gift certificates and more.
