LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WALKERS, RUNNERS, BIKERS AND SKATERS OF ALL AGES:   

Do you feel the need to step up your cardio and burn some extra calories? 
Tired of your kids sitting around in front of the TV or computer and texting all day long? 
Then come spend some time in the fresh air and use that energy to help our communities and join your neighbors in family-oriented non-competitive events for Walkers, Runners, Bikers and 
Skaters.   
Proceeds to go to Park Pride and support area parks including Mary Scott Nature Park, Clyde Shepherd Preserve, and the new park planned for Lavista Rd in Oak Grove.


See the Resources page for route maps.
