Family fun runs, walks, bike rides are a great way to show your community support while helping children and families in need – physically, socially, and financially! Participating in a fundraiser together is a meaningful family activity, and exercising together is important fun to make time for!  So combining these two creates a terrific opportunity for your kids and family to make a difference in others’ lives as well as your own.  What Monster Dash are you participating in?
