We are so grateful for all of the sponsorship and support we have received over the last 16 years since our event began,” said event co-chair Heather Sweeney. “Without our community backing this event, it just would not be possible. This year we have so many exciting things planned for race day and look forward to another well-attended event where our community comes together for some exercise and, most importantly, fun! We are lucky to welcome back Alan St. Louis to sing the National Anthem – Alan holds the world record for the most consecutive National Anthems sung in one year!
