HOW YOUR REGISTRATION HELPS
The Big Run helps raise funds to send youth runners to Without Limits Youth Cross Country Camp.
The camp is designed to encourage athletes through positive reinforcement, in picturesque settings, with a goal to make running fun while preparing for the upcoming season.
Each year, athletes leave camp with greater confidence, a new love of running, and lots of new friends from all over the country. Cross country teams that attend leave with stronger team camaraderie heading into the official start of the cross country season.
