The race is over, and your generous donations have helped us raise almost $7,300 – making us the #7 fundraising team in Richmond! We had great race conditions yesterday – in the mid 60’s with partial clouds. 8 team members walked and ran the race with thousands of other walkers and runners. We had a great time and can’t wait for next year!
