Why support such an event and its corresponding non-profit? For starters, this race series aims to highlight Appalachia in a new way; a way that brings in new tourism dollars every year to help support local business, non-profits and the great outdoors. It will also highlight the resources in Appalachia and beyond that our participants can recognize in support of those things. In return, I believe our participants and others will be inclined to support you, and make our community even bigger and stronger than it was before. Please join me in taking this opportunity to invest in Appalachia and in our community! Thank you!
