We are so pleased to have raised almost $40,000 in 7 years for charities in memory of Jeff including the Association of Retarded Citizens, St. Jude Children's Hospital, Boggy Creek Gang Camp, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Wounded Warrior Project, Community Partnership for Children, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, LIVESTRONG, and the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.
This year we are working for Team RWB.
As always, the Run to the Sun will be held on Thanksgiving weekend, Saturday, November 30th, 2013 in beautiful New Smyrna Beach, Florida. It is a timed 4-Mile distance that travels over 2 bridges for a lovely view of the river which presents a challenging course. For walkers, this course offers a chance to view the sunrise, dolphins at play and boats heading out to sea in the quaint town of New Smyrna Beach. This unique route is like no other traveling from Riverside Park over the biggest bridge in town towards the beach and then back over a nostalgic drawbridge at the North Causeway heading back to Riverside Park.
Race registration begins at 7:30 and the race begins at 8:30 a.m.
This year’s race will benefit Team RWB. Please visit our 2013 Charity Page to read more about their mission and how you can actively get involved at the Run and throughout the year.
