Event Overview

Don’t worry, you can wear shoes for this race which will take place on the Dix Hill Campus.  The location of the start/finish for your GPS is 805 Ruggles Drive in Raleigh with the race starting at 8:00 am.

The event is being put on by The Revolution Church to raise funds to the Kelly Dowless family.  Kelly was struck with Transverse Myelitis, a debilitating condition which has left her paralyzed.  Some proceeds from the race will assist with providing Kelly a handicap accessible bathroom so that she can gain some independence that she does not currently have.  A portion of proceeds will go to help fund research and initiatives of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

For further information about Kelly, click here to read her story as written in an article in the News and Observer.

The entry fee is $25, on or before July 1, and $30 thereafter, up to and including race day.  The fee includes a t-shirt.
