Walk, crawl, swing... just don't go bananas and start running! These silly monkeys will get a custom bumper sticker to display their 0.5K feat!

Giving to the Cause

What could make this event even better? To send the event proceeds to an organization who comes alongside families that have lost a child. That's exactly what your registration does. Thank you for joining us in supporting Eternal Surrender and this sensitive, but necessary mission.

Eternal Surrender is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization created to help families who have lost a child by offering financial assistance for final expenses, Bible studies, offering respite for the families on difficult anniversaries or birthdays, and with grief retreats.
