Find your friends and family and show your support by walking or running--you choose the course that is best for you:  5k or 1 mile.  The course has a water station half-way and travels the campus of Plymouth-Canton Educational Park.

After you are done, stick around to have a snack and chat with your friends or meet the recipient families.
