Make a difference

Donate deodorant
The reality of poverty is that a hot shower isn't always available. And even when it is, there may not be money left over for the necessities: soap, shampoo,
even deodorant.
That's why we're partnering with 
Giving the Basics, an organization that distributes toiletries to thousands of people a month. You can donate to our "Deodorant Drive" at any Cornerstones of Care campus or RUN 816 in Westport from now until race day. Or better yet, bring it on Thanksgiving when you come to run!
