Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services (Hoses) will be running for The Goshen Valley Boys Ranch which is a non-profit home serving young men in the state foster care system. The charity for Cherokee Sheriff’s Office (Guns) will be the Cherokee Sheriffs Foundation which is dedicated to helping families locally in Cherokee County.

Shirts will be made available in the race packet for all 5K participants only (Shirt size selections will be guaranteed for those that register by February 9th ONLY). All 1-mile Fun Run participants will earn a commemorative medal. For the 5K race, awards will be given in both male and female divisions in a variety of age groups as well.
