Sleepy Monkey (Invisible Runner):
-Love the cause, but not so much the running? We even have an option for you! Register as a Sleepy Monkey (invisible) runner to have your shirt mailed directly to you - no running involved (unless you run to the mailbox of course!)
Monkey Maniac 2 Mile Chase:
Want to become a Monkey Maniac?
Can you make it across the finish line with your bananas?
Only open to the first 50 registrants, these runners will be given a banana belt* with 2 bananas attached. Make it across the finish line with at least one banana, and get a specialty shirt!
But watch out!! There are many silly monkeys throughout the course who are ready to steal your bananas!
(*The banana belts are flag football belts, with the flags acting as your bananas!)
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.
