Thank you for your support last year and we would love for you to continue to support our amazing community! Thanks to your continued support over the last seven years, we’ve sent over $40,000 to help wounded veterans in America. This year we have chosen the Semper Fi Community Task Force as the non-profit organization that will benefit from your support. If you are from the local area and have seen the Veteran’s Day Parade, then you have seen them in action. The Wounded Warriors riding in the corvettes are all in Huntsville as part of Heroes Week, a major outreach of the SFCTF.
This will probably be the last year that we run the race from the current Grissom High School, so come out and enjoy the course one last time!
We hope you will help us spread the word! How do you do that?
