    I hate to keep reiterating what others have asked, but I am unsure what I'm supposed to do. Do we show up between 6 and 7 am, pick up a packet and just be ready to run/walk? Will we be walking/running as a group? Is there someway to provide more details please? This would be my first event.

    I look forward to seeing everyone and honoring our heroes at this special run/walk/wheel event next Saturday. Proceeds from this event will give financial and emotional support services to our wounded heroes. See you all soon!
