Aaron's Race and Roll:

Last year we had quite a bit of media exposure from WFAA, KLAK, Dallas Morning News etc. and we are looking forward to that this year as well! We have Pepsico and Fritolay, Pogue and 15 other sponsors who have helped us out and we are so excited as ALL of the proceeds go to HUGS Café, Especially Needed, and Manegait. (Last year we raised 27000.00 in six weeks)

Info about my race:

Aaron’s Race and Roll – a 5k, 1k race for ALL people and All abilities! This Race is open to all kids and adults of ALL abilities to be able to Run this race, or Roll in this race – wheelchairs and crutches included! The heart of this race was born in the heart of Aaron Gigley - a 16 (now 18) year old who has had more than his share of struggles. He wanted people of all abilities to be able to experience and feel the sense of accomplishment that he felt at his first and only race -- He came in Last - but HE FINISHED! We will have able bodied volunteers present to help everyone to finish, but this race will also be TIMED for the Elite Athlete as well!

ALL PROCEEDS will go to – ManeGait, Especially Needed, and Hugs Café!
