"Help Us To Help Others" by participating in this worthy fundraiser for Sterling House Community Center.
 
  You can expect to get wet, dirty, sandy, foamy, muddy as you walk, run, climb and crawl your way to the finish line.  You will have absolutely nothing but a good time, a load of laughs and a sense of doing something good for those less fortunate than you. There will be no winners, no losers, no medals, no judgments and nothing will be timed. Go at your own speed, but "leave no man behind" on your team.
You're in it to "Win It For Sterling House" !
