Last year, we were able to raise over $160,000 for donation to Bridgeport/Fairfield-based charities. We would not be able to do that without your support & the support of our sponsors! Help us beat that!
**Note: We reserve the right to transfer any in-person registrations to virtual run registrations at ANY time, should public health concerns require us to cancel our in-person run. Due to the charitable nature of this event, no refunds will be provided. **
