Why Participate?

  • April 20th is historically a day that celebrates unhealthy choices. WE believes in providing resources to allow people to make healthy decisions not just this day, but every day of the year.
  • The aim of the race is to utilize the science of behavioral change to highlight the desire our community members have to foster lives that are centered around health promotion and the development of healthy brains and healthy bodies.
