This year’s road race took place on Sunday, September 16. Many came out to support a great cause. The road race was followed by post race party with DJ, food, drinks, prizes and more to benefit the Brian Higgins Foundation, helping children with special needs have a fun quality of life. The funds collected at this event provide the primary source of funds for the Foundation. Every penny collected goes directly to supporting special needs children and their families.

    a great day with a great group! the Higgins Foundation has done so much for people with disabilities in this city, they’re amazing. Many families have benefited from these events. And on top of that, it’s great fun. Thanks to the Higgins Family for keeping this going!
