” This 3rd annual (VIRTUAL THIS YEAR) race is memory of our beautiful daughter, Lauren, who lost her life to the opioid epidemic in Dec 2017. She was very creative and artistic…. And loved humankind beyond measure…
Since so many have lost love ones to this epidemic, join us in helping to raise awareness, to end the stigma, the shame, and to provide hope.
We encourage those who are in recovery,to join us as well.
With the support of all , we can provide hope, encourage healthy coping mechanisms, and help others overcome , Not only the grief fornthose who have suffered a loss, but the demons of this disease for those thay silently suffer.
This race is in the beautiful, picturesque, rolling hills of Winchester. Beginning and ending at a favorite park of Laurens .
This year will be different, no frills …..sign up to do it VIRTUALLY Here……
It is a 3.1 mile course that begins on a short hill, then downhill through the winding curvy roads of Winchester. It ends on a dirt road with a steep hill at the end , leveling out to the finish …… hope to see you there!
