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. The Hero Hustle wants to make a positive contribution to Red Racks Thrift Store non-profit chain of thrift stores owned and operated by the Disabled American Veterans. All proceeds generated by Red Racks Thrift Stores are used to support local DAV chapters and their outreach programs. Let’s help our American Heroes and thank them for all they have done for our country with a huge donation!

To support the DAV and Red Racks Thrift Store we will be collecting gently used clothing. Please bring them to packet pickup, race day or even to our studio any time before the race.
