To continue a tradition started a few years ago we are donating to Wreaths Across America through American Legion Post 290. So far we have committed to seven wreaths that will be placed on military member graves on December 14th in Firestone Park. This is the first year our wreaths are staying local. The American Legion is trying to raise funds for 900 wreaths!
We are helping the Columbiana Police Department with their efforts to raise funds for the continuation of their K9 program and it's needed growth. After the race until 11pm we are sending runners to Birdfish Down Low for an after party. All tips collected for the evening will be going towards the K9 program.
Details will be coming forth soon for a shoe drive collection and a collection for items for care packages to be sent to our deployed military members. Each donation we are participating in will have places to make direct donations to those causes the evening of the race.
