Bring the kids or pets or both and help support the VA Fisher House. All profits go to the Minneapolis VA Fisher House.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.
Race starts at 8:00 am rain or shine with a shot gun start. Check in begins at 7:00 am in front of the clinic with packet pick up at that time. Parking is free and available at the clinic parking lot.
