With over 2,000 participants and countless contributors, the run/walk event raised over $265,000 – 100% of which goes directly to the CCF. Contributors consisted of both individuals and teams. The top individual fundraiser, Mark Bastarache, raised over $20k, while the top team, Madi’s Tummy Ninja’s (pictured below), raised over $31k. This total is a part of over $4.1 million that has been raised since event inception.
“This is a day I look forward to every year,” said Bob Edmunds, Race Chairperson & Owner of Edmunds GovTech. “Not only are we supporting a cause near and dear to my family, but we’re making a real difference funding needed and meaningful research.”
The festival-like event is filled with music, food, kid’s entertainment, educational materials, and so much more. Rain or shine, it is a day of celebration that will leave attendees feeling empowered for having made a difference, inspired about the future, and connected to those on a similar journey.
