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 helping City Union Mission in their mission to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of men, women, and children who are poor or homeless. City Union Mission uses more than 6,000 rolls of toilet paper each month and helping provide this simple item will greatly decrease their expense.
So please remember to bring packages of toilet paper to packet pickup, race day or even to our studio any time before the race to benefit City Union Mission.
