Charity Partner:

Our mission at Bodies Race Company is to make a positive impact in our community. We do this by providing a healthy activity for the whole family and benefiting local charities. We want everyone to have a great time and invest in their health but we are also calling on our great community to help those in need. This Christmas season we have the privilege of collecting toys for Toys for Tots at the Candy Cane Course. Toys for Tots is a great charity that collects toys and distributes them to children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to receive a present during Christmas.

So please remember to bring a new toy that is unwrapped to packet pickup, race day or even to our studio any time before the race to benefit Toys for Tots.
