Are you ready for a creatively-charged run/walk?! You will be entertained as you navigate the course by fine artists, musicians, dancers, circus acts, and more! Come dressed in your brightest and most creative gear! 

You are supporting a great cause!
Established in 2009, drawchange is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empower impoverished children through the use of art therapy-based programming. By empowering children to KNOW they are capable of creating beauty in their lives, boosting their self esteem and empowering them to know they don't' have to buy into the cycle of poverty, we are helping end homelessness. Join us by donating or registering for this event. It's our biggest fundraiser of the year!
