This race is sponsored by the Prairie State Road Runners to benefit various charities. As we have done in the past, we are collecting school supplies. We will have boxes and containers for these at race check-in. Any kind of school supplies are needed, but in particular there is a need for adult sized/styled backpacks. In lieu of school supplies, we will accept donations by cash or check at race check-in. Please make checks payable to PSRR.
