Held in conjunction with Renville Sugar Beet Days, this event incorporates a morning centered on hope, health, and stewardship.  Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative is the sole sponsor of the event underwriting the cost of the run/walk thereby ensuring all registrations fees are donated to help in the fight against cancer.  Since inception in 2010, we have raised and donated $72,978!  All registration fees will be donated to Renville County Walk in the Park.
