“We would like to thank all the individual contributors who have made donations over the past year in support of these wonderful youth programs,” said Betsy Hughes, co-owner of Track Shack.  
In addition to individual contributions, financial support of the local organizations is also made possible by runners and walkers who actively take part in Track Shack’s local running events. Race proceeds positively impact the community and improve the quality of life for so many.
