Deliver Hope with your Race

For 2018, we are partnering with Children’s Hunger Fund, a local non-profit, to ensure a portion of each registration goes directly to feeding children in our community and around the world. By signing up for the TMU Winter 5K, each participant is funding 10 meals for kids in need. THANK YOU for helping Deliver Hope!
