Breast Cancer Charity Supporters Race
Each year we run special “Breast Cancer Charity Supporters” races where the winning team gets $1,000 + the pool of $100 entries to donate to the breast cancer charity of their choice (i.e. if 6 teams enter these special races the total prize will be $1,600).
Have your team join us in these races and lets help in the fight against breast cancer!
