The Kickoff Party is held annually and invites 2017 registrants as well as past registrants who may not be committed to running yet to come out to Memorial Park and celebrate the beginning of training for the 2017 races. In addition to generating excitement about the upcoming year, Kickoff encourages runners to engage with the Run for a Reason charities and participate on behalf of your charity! The focus will be on HERO, registration for that started May 5 – May 31, 2016 and Fundraising for Registration (FFR) charity entries, registration starts on June 1st and sells out quickly. Run for a Reason (RFAR) t-shirt sales, and “In Training” t-shirt giveaway (participant registration confirmations are required to pick up this free shirt). We hope to see you out there!
