Charity / Fundraising for the neighborhood

For the first time, fans can raise donations to support the neighborhood.

Every participant of the run that raises $100 or more will receive the Collectors Edition Cross Body Bag.

This race continues to restore homes in the south Tremont neighborhoods including the area where A Christmas Story Movie locations were filmed. When you raise funds, you are giving a Christmas Gift that lasts all year long, restoring homes including replacement of windows, roofs, siding, porches and much much more.
