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. We will be joining Project Warmth in their incredible initiative to provide coats, blankets, and funds during the harsh winter months to many here in our own metro.

So please remember to bring gently used coats and blankets to packet pickup, race day or even to our studio any time before the race to benefit Project Warmth.
