Participants, volunteers, and those cheering in the stands come together to meet the moment in time. For the past two years, we have been isolated from friends and loved ones as we collectively battle a pandemic. Now, we celebrate not only our chance to reconnect in person, but our ability to transcend the challenge and emerge stronger, fitter, and more committed to the importance of community spirit and togetherness.
