Hip, Hip, Hooray!!! It was our last day!


We had a great last session. It was HOT, but the kids did an awesome job beating the heat! Make sure they drink plenty of water tonight! Don't forget the have them hydrate Friday night and Saturday morning before the race, too!

SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you register your child for the race, yet?

  • Please do this step by tomorrow at the latest!
  • Remember... you do not have to pay any money for your child, but you MUST log-on to the Fundracers website, choose Scamper for Cancer, and click Register Online, Mail a Check (there is NO check to mail).
  • From there, register your child and use the promo code GOGO
  • Now they will be able to get a number and a t-shirt.
  • If you do NOT register, they cannot race!!!
  • If you or other family members wish to run, then you must also register yourself this way and pay the race fee.


Thank you for making a race poster for your child to bring on race morning! They will love to see it as you cheer them on!

Thanks so much for your support!! We have LOVED having running club!!
